      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Coward's Care Philosophy

      I have limited my practice to evaluation and treatment of knee problems for 30 years. My goal and treatment is to identify your knee problem and determine the appropriate clinical pathway for treatment. I emphasize nonoperative management for many knee problems. We have two physical therapists in our practice specializing in knee rehabilitation. If surgery becomes an option I have performed 15,000 knee operations including 2500 ACL reconstructions and revisions.
