Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Geiger "Orthopedic Surgery is the branch of medicine that deals in all facets of evaluation, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Dr. Geiger works on treating musculoskeletal problems resulting from birth, abnormal development, overuse or injury. Although Dr. Geiger is trained as an orthopedic surgeon, most of the conditions he treats can be helped without surgical intervention. Dr. Geiger offers the best care with innovative minimally invasive treatment options and offers onsite diagnostic x-rays, physical therapy, injections, casting and bracing services."
