Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Coufal "Dr. Coufal applies expertise and specialized training daily to deliver state-the-art care.

He recognizes the importance of all patients thoroughly understanding the cause and treatment options for their problem. In fact, he admits, "My biggeset shortcoming is that I talk and spend too much time with patients."

Orthopedics is a large area of expertise and one surgeon "cannot do it all." Muir Orthopaedic Specialists has many surgeons that cover the gamut of care, so Dr. Coufal will refer patients to the best surgeon for them within the MOS group, if necessary.

In the practice, Dr. Coufal is most proud of the full-time orthopedic trauma service. He is committed to the compassionate treatment of his patients."
