Dr. Wierks' bio

His interest in hip preservation techniques, including hip arthroscopy, has set him apart as a "destination" provider in western Michigan. Dr. Wierks is a physician to the U.S. Snowboard teams, and is an avid snowboarder himself. He has also provided sideline coverage to the Baltimore Orioles baseball team and local high school and college sports teams. www.wmortho.net"
This content was provided by Dr. Wierks "My goal is to get patients back to doing what they love most, so they can "enjoy every movement". I love it when patients are involved in their own health care decisions and recovery.
It can be difficult to navigate the complex healthcare environment as a patient. I believe it is important for patients to be aware of the specialty, and subspecialty, interests and abilities of their treating physician, so they receive the highest quality of care possible.
