Patient Care Philosophy
I especially enjoy helping patients restore the ability to do the things they need to do for work, sports or daily life. Giving the best care means listening carefully, providing current and accurate information, and developing a personalized plan that best meets each patient's needs. When surgery is chosen it should be undertaken with the greatest possible precision and care. As a surgeon, what excites me most is when the surgery I perform results in patients coming back with smiles and the ability to do things they weren't able to do at the first clinic visit. Often therapy and multidisciplinary providers are pivotal to the success, and I enjoy the team approach and shared celebration of our successes.
