Our approach to treating patients

Delivering exceptional orthopaedic care for over 27 years with the last 10 in your community. I welcome you to familiarize yourself with orthopaedic care and some of the treatment options available.

We believe in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques--surgery is just one treatment option. We combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide our patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.

We work to develop a partnership with our patients. On our part, this begins with listening. And one of the most important things we need to know is how the physical problem affects this patient's life. We develop a dialogue, through which our patients understand the diagnostic process, their own unique problem, their treatment choices, and the recovery process. Patients help to guide and direct the diagnostic and treatment activities.

We believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why we explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, we want our patients to understand their condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, we present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. We will also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, We will explain that avenue in depth.

Our purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to us that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is our responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and the multiple choices of treatment.

My professional staff and I will also provide you with patient education materials, (e.g., web sites, pamphlets, and video tapes) that give you added appreciation of your condition and treatment options.
