Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kummerfeld "I approach every patient as a family member and treat you as I would have my own mother, grandmother or child treated.  I believe in nonoperative interventions whenever possible and reserve operative intervention as the last step in the care pathway.

Patient expectations and involvement in their own care is paramount in the recovery process.  If a particular habit or medical condition will potentially impede the outcome of a treatment, I educate the patient about those conditions in a nonjudgmental manner."
