Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tessier "The cornerstone of my approach is listening, observing and learning. Taking the time to truly understand my patients' needs is at the core of my caring philosophy.  My primary goal is to help our patients feel better quickly with the best and most up to date treatment possible. I use the latest diagnostic techniques to locate the source of a patient's problem and then recommend a treatment plan to best suit his or her needs.

When surgery is the optimal solution, I am committed to helping my patients recover quickly so they can resume their desired activities as soon as possible. I use minimally invasive techniques whenever feasible to reduce post-operative discomfort and to speed recovery. Often exercises and physical therapy before surgery, and a customized rehabilitation program following surgery, will be prescribed to expedite recovery."

So far Dr. Tessier has been direct and informative and helpful. The video was good but I didn't see how he would actually fix the tear just the impingement so I will contact the doctors office before surgery.
