      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Grimes' Care Philosophy

      The first step in treating a patient with pain is to obtain an accurate diagnoses. We do this by actually listening to the patient and also by examining them. That accomplished we then go over all available options and decide , in cooperation with the patient, which ones to pursue. This is optimally accomplished with a combination of interventional procedures and medication management.
