I believe all patients should be treated as individuals. While multiple patients may have the same injury or problem each person is unique. In order for a patient to have the best outcome I draw on my knowledge and technical expertise to give them excellent treatment, but also tailor that treatment to their specific goals. Whether my patient is a weekend warrior, competitive athlete or retiree, I work to get them back to their desired activities as quickly and safely as possible.

Many injuries can be treated non-operatively, and I always explore non-operative treatment first when possible. When operative treatment is needed I apply the latest minimally invasive techniques. I attempt to educate my patients so they have a good understanding of their orthopedic problem and then collaborate with them to devise the optimal treatment plan.

A successful surgery is only part of what is required for an excellent outcome. The post-operative recovery and rehabilitation is crucial to the success of most procedures. To this end I believe it is critical to remain supportive and involved in patient care until recovery is complete.
