My approach to treating patients
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 our patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.
It is only when conservative, non-operative treatment modalities are completely exhausted, that surgery is considered. When surgery is an option I perform the most advanced, and least invasive technique that will bring my patients back to full function in the shortest time. I have had extensive training in all the latest most advanced techniques, including: minimaally invasive surgery, microdiscectomies, cervical fusions, kyphoplasties, and disk replacement.
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.
