Fracture care is a complicated specialty. Not only do fractures hurt physically, but they cause social, psychological and financial problems as well. Caring for the fracture patient often involves caring about the effect of the fracture on the patients life. Loss of income creates many more problems than the simple fact of having an injury. My role is to not only treat the fracture in a manner which is the most likely to restore function, but also to provide information and resources for patients to cope with their injuries. I believe in spending time with patients to help me understand their situation so I can present options for their treatment which will help them accomplish their goals, but also to help them set reasonable expectations. Medical care is a two-way street and patients must be involved in and understand their care.

Dr. Volgas Says:
I appreciate feedback from patients as it helps me understand what is important to them. When I go to a physician, I want him/her to listen to my issues and address those issues with knowledge and a concern for me as a person.
I try very hard to listen not only to what patients say, but also to what they don't say. In many cases, patients try to please the doctor when in fact, they are...
