'My goal is to educate the patient such that they understand their condition and the risks and benefits of each treatment. Most aspects of orthopedic surgery are not life and death situations. More often, a change in quality of life must be weighed against the risks of a particular treatment. An informed patient is able to determine what course of treatment is appropriate for them.'
