Care Philosophy

Movement allows us to define our lives through physical activities. The concept of treating bones and joints to maintain mobility and return patients to athletic performance is what drew to me to the practice of orthopedic surgery.   During my advanced training at The Steadman Clinic, where the motto is "keeping people active," I learned both innovative and minimally invasive techniques for accomplishing this goal. Seeing patients return to their desired pursuits makes my practice fulfilling and rewarding. As a physician and surgeon at The Coughlin Clinic, I will employ this philosophy as I work with my patients towards our goal of returning them to the activities that define their lives.
