At each visit, I try to give my patients three things: a sense that I listened to them, a clear understanding of what is happening with their body, and a plan for improving their health. Some problems will require surgery, and I am a good surgeon. However, many problems can be handled outside of the OR. This may be in my office, at a physical therapist's office. It may even be at home, or in a gym, or at the dining table. Really good care does not neglect these parts of healing and I try to incorporate them before, after, or instead of surgery whenever I can.
