My approach to treating patients
Very simply, I treat others as I would want to be treated.
It is too easy to focus on the injury or the orthopedic problem...I know...I've been an orthopedic patient myself. I endured years of medical treatment for a miriad of injuries when I was an All-American swimmer. These experiences taught me that good patient care involves not only making an accurate and timely diagnosis, but treating the patient with respect and compassion. I also believe in teaching my patients to help them understand the problem. This helps to treat the immediate problem, but hopefully, helps to avoid future injuries/pain.
My practice includes orthopedic fracture care in addition to my specialized interest in Orthopedic Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery (i.e. Hand, Elbow, and Shoulder surgery).
