As an experienced physician with more than 25 years of specialization in orthopaedics, I take a highly personal approach to caring for my patients. For example, the phone will always be answered by one of my dedicated staff when you call during business hours. There will never be an impersonal automated machine directing you to push a multitude of buttons to only get to the end and then you have to leave a voice message not knowing when you will receive a return call.
My practice specializes in sports medicine, general orthopaedics (taking care of the shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist, hand, knee, ankle, foot), and orthopaedic surgery. So, whether you're making the decision for orthopaedic care, or would just like to expand your knowledge, I hope my website helps you become informed and more confident about the incredible realm of orthopaedic treatments available to you. I believe the most important aspects of providing quality care is listening to the needs of patients (communication), patient education, prevention of musculoskeletal injuries, presenting treatment options to the patient, establishing a relationship with my patients and especially involving patients in the treatment plan. I believe that knowledgeable patient make the best decisions about their own treatment. That is why every step of the diagnostic process is explained. My professional staff and I will provide you with patient education materials, (e.g. web sites, pamphlets, and booklets) that will give you added information of your condition and treatment options. Patients can understand their condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem or consider treatment alternatives. I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. In addition, I'll explain the risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that avenue in depth. Many of my patients never need to have surgery - many times rehabilitation of the injured area is all that is needed. I work closely with a team of local physical therapists who, like me, believe in conservative methods: If an injury can be rehabilitated without surgery, that is what should be done. I inform my patients of treatment options they have for an injury, and what the advantages and disadvantages are of each option. There is a lot of valuable patient information available today that can answer many questions a patient may have, or help alleviate concerns. I believe my staff and I may be your most valuable resource for any thoughts or concerns you have, which is why we are here.
The best compliment I receive is when patients recommend me to one of their family members or friends. Patient's trust is of utmost importance to me. My main approach to helping heal your injury is to keep you well informed through dialogue and through external sources of information that are available. It is my job to help you understand why I take or do not take certain actions.
