Approach to treating patients

As physicians with a combined experience of more than 30 years of specialization in orthopaedics, we take a highly personal approach to caring for our patients.

We believe the most important aspects of providing quality care are listening to the needs of our patients, thorough testing, communication, patient education and presenting treatment options.

The practice specializes in sports medicine, total joint replacements, rehabilitation, general orthopaedics, foot and ankle, hand, wrist, knee and shoulder surgery.

This practice is unique in that we can provide our own physical therapy and maintain a state of the art surgical center for your convenience.

We look forward to having the opportunity to take care of you, and to helping you achieve your best possible musculoskeletal health.
