Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kahler "I strive to provide quality care to both routine patients with shoulder conditions, and the more complicated severely injured trauma patients. I developed many of the current techniques in computer-assisted trauma surgery during my years at UVA. I am available for consultation for patients who have failed initial treatment for fractures or shoulder problems. I recently completed recertification by the Orthopaedic Board."
