My approach to treating patients
Welcome to my Orthopaedic Surgery practice. My approach to rendering care has always been to treat the person rather than treat a medical condition that the person presents with. My attitude is always to listen and fully understand the person's problem, formulate a working diagnosis and, if need be, obtain supporting appropriate studies, before making a diagnosis. I discuss and explain the diagnosis and educate the person in simple understandable language for the person to be involved in making the proper decision about her/his care. The impact of the diagnosis and the care is best appreciated by the person. If a non-surgical care would have the same outcome as the surgical care, I prefer the former.
