Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bae ""My interest in orthopedics stems from my prior experience as a athlete, having successfully recovered from surgery on both shoulders to swim at the Division 1 level and captain the Harvard Mens Varsity Team. I was fortunate to train in orthopedics, pediatrics, and hand surgery at outstanding centers of excellence, and ultimately joined the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital.

Caring for infants with congenital hand differences, children with neuromuscular disorders, adolescents with fractures, or collegiate athletes with sports injuries is both a tremendous privilege and profound responsibility. My professional philosophy is to provide the highest quality, most compassionate care to improve the lives of my patients, based upon the best scientific evidence available.  Furthermore I am firmly committed to both education and research, to train the next generation of orthopedic surgeons and improve the standards of care for future patients.""
