About me

I 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. I combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide my patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.

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

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

My purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to me that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is my 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 helpful patient education resources in print or on-line formats to help make your decision-making, treatment, and recovery as quick and pain-free as possible.
