Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nicholson "Taking time to listen to patients helps me understand their injury and determine the best plan for helping them.  I take the time to review X-rays, MRIs and other test results to ensure patients are well informed about their situation.  I include my patients in decisions with regard to their treatment plan. Being conservative, I perform surgery when non-surgical options are exhausted or no longer make sense.  Being a skilled, experienced surgeon, my patients can expect and trust the best outcome.  "
