Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Alman "I became an orthopaedic surgeon because I enjoy the mechanical nature of how joints bones and muscles work together. I chose to focus on treating children because it provides me with an opportunity to make a difference in their health now and for the rest of their lives. As Ive entered the later stages of my career I have had the privilege of seeing patients who I treated come back to me as adults seeking treatment for their own children. I find it very fulfilling to see how the treatments I gave the parent helped them become a healthy fully functional adult. I believe that being a good doctor means treating the whole patient rather than focusing only on individual parts of the body. I enjoy working with my patients to make sure they are getting all the treatments they need to get and stay well. In my spare time I enjoy photography hiking and backpacking."

Another doctor wanted to do a major surgery on my child and Dr. Alman suggested a simpler procedure that worked our great.

I did not enjoy this experience. He was delivering us some fairly bad news about our child and he had this weird grin on his face the whole time. I think it was his discomfort but it was very unsettling. He recommended another surgeon for the actual procedure.

This was a terrible experience. We had a similar experience as some of the other previous reviews - an unpredictable attidtude. Our 8 yr old son had a tumorin his leg and Alman blurted out something about "well if he doesn't respond to treatment, we'll need to amputate" - right in front of my son...more

Dr. Alman spent so much time with us. He sent is for extra studies and explained everything to us in such detail. I was so happy that he let us decide about treatments. It was t a great experience.

My son had an injury to his arm and the first doctor who saw him had not seen this before, and told him he could not go back to competitive sports. Dr. Alman had seen the problem before, did surgery on my son, and now he is back to all his sports, and doing great..
