My approach to treating patients

Whether you're making the decision for orthopaedic care or just seeking information to expand you knowledge, I hope this site helps you become informed and more confident about the incredible realm of orthopaedic treatments available.

I believe in meeting patients needs through compenhensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active and as pain-free a life stye as is possible. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques--surgery is just one treatment option. We combine leading edge technology and traditional methods to provide our patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.

I believe that informed patients make the best decisions regarding their own care and treatment. That's why I explain the diagnostic process. I want my patients to understand their condition: How it started and how various treatments can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment options, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can expect to achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that avenue indepth.

My purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and professionalism. It is highly important to me that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is my responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and the treatment options available to them. Your health and quality orthopaedic care are my top priorities. I strongly believe the most successful patient care results from a process of two-way communication. I welcome your feedback each step of the way.

Thank you for visiting this website. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns. We'd love to hear from you.
