Philosophy of Care

My practice emphasis is the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee and hip. At the initiation of care, we take our time in treating the whole person, not just their diseased hip and or knee. I want to educate and guide our patients through all options of treatment that are uniquely tailored to them. This could include total joint replacement which can be a life changing event for most patients. Our approach is to guide them through every step of the way with this decision. Providing our patients with proper expectation management, communication, optimization techniques and surgical skill to maximize their outcome and to get them back to the game of life.
