This content was provided by Dr. Fardon "The nature of what doctors are taught and what they learn and the ability to take that and make people's lives better was very attractive to me. The best choice I ever made was to go to medical school, and I've never regretted that. What confirms my feeling that I made the right decision in going into orthopedics, and particularly in spine, is the gratitude that I feel from my patients who I've helped to understand their disorders. And to find solutions for them. And that I'm practicing in a place where I'm surrounded by people who provide the very best care."
