Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Palmer "At Optim Orthopedics, we know you're not yourself when even just one part of you is hurt. Because in orthopedics, everything is connected: bones, joints, ligaments, and cartilage. We're connected too. Our doctors cover every bone in the body and we work together as a team for our patients. We call our approach - Combined Strength, and we use it to get you back to you."

Patient Comments (2)

Dr Palmer did replacements on both shoulders and knees for my husband over the past couple of years. We can't express enough our satisfaction with his care from start to finish on all 4 procedures. He is caring, compassionate, professional, experienced - just an excellent doctor!
