Patient Care Philosophy

It is an honor and a privilege to care for you or your family member. We are here to educate and assist you in dealing with your orthopedic condition. We will do our best guide you skillfully through managing your pain, disability, or other circumstances to the best of our abilities. We focus on the entire patient, and will assist you in achieving your goals to the greatest extent possible.

The decision to pursue surgical intervention comes at the exhaustion of other treatment options, and is yours alone. We will help you identify any obstacles prior to successful hip and knee replacement and provide a means of optimizing outcomes for each patient.
