Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Weatherby "Dr. Weatherby will always consider a non-operative approach to orthopaedic problems. A variety of interventions can often be performed to treat a patient's symptoms. If symptoms do not improve following an adequate course of nonoperative measures, then Dr. Weatherby will discuss the benefits, and the potential risks of surgery with the patient. The operative plan and expected postoperative recovery will be discussed thoroughly with the patient prior to surgery."
