My approach to treating patients

When many people consider visiting an orthopaedic surgeon, their first thought is "Oh, I don't want (or need) surgery." They may be right.

Surgery is only one of many treatment options. Many of my patients never need to have surgery - many times rehabilitation of the injured area is all that is needed. I work closely with a team of local physical therapists who, like me, believe in conservative methods: If an injury can be rehabilitated without surgery, that is what should be done. I inform my patients of all the treatment options they have for an injury, and what the advantages and disadvantages are of each option. There is a lot of valuable patient information available today that can answer many questions a patient may have, or help to calm some concerns they may have. I believe that my staff and I may be your most valuable resource for any thoughts or concerns you have, which is why we are here.

The best compliment I receive is when patients recommend me to one of their family members or friends. My patient's trust is of utmost importance to me. Any injury causes you concern and anxiety - you may not know what is wrong and what needs to be done to correct your injury. My main approach to helping heal your injury is to keep you well informed - through dialogue between us and through external sources of information that are available. It is my job to help you understand why I take, or do not take, certain actions.

When you come to see me as your orthopaedic surgeon, surgery is not your only option. Sometimes through rehabilitation and available prescriptions, your injury may be healed. If you do require surgery, I'll keep you informed of why surgery is required, what will be done in the surgery, and what to expect as an eventual outcome after surgery.
