Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Haas "Dr. Haas takes a much different approach than the typical "one-size-fits-all" standard procedure. He customizes every procedure to suit the needs and desires of his patients without compromising safety or function. His surgical assistant often jokes about his surgical versatility by saying; "I've never seen you perform the same surgery the same way twice.""
