Care Philosophy

I knew I wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon when I was in high school, and I saw what my dad did when he was on the sidelines of my football team and how he would take care of some of the injuries that would occur. And I said, Boy, that's the kind of doctor I want to be. What is that? And it was an orthopedic surgeon who liked to do sports medicine. And then once I got into my residency program, I recognized that at that time, 20 years ago, there was a lot of information about the knee and problems related to the knee, but the shoulder understanding was in it's infancy. And that really intrigued me. I thought that there was a lot of opportunity to learn more about the shoulder and to contribute more to my profession, in terms of understanding the problems and figuring out the problems. And that's why, out of the whole area of sports medicine, I decided to focus in shoulder and elbow surgery. We can tell that the operations we're doing are - number one they're very effective. The results are getting what we want, which is pain relief and return back to function. Number two, the operations are very consistent. We're not getting the just once in a while but on a regular basis. And number three, once we have really learned how to do this well and teach it to other surgeons, we hear back from those other surgeons - whether they trained with us or we've taught them at a course - that, I'm really happy that I learned how to do that operation from you because my patients are getting better much faster and much more consistently.Read more

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.
