This content was provided by Dr. Freels "My philosophy in treating patients is to treat them as if they were my own family. I try to listen and offer alternative non-surgical treatments. If they are in need of surgery, I offer the options and explain the expectations . Engagement of the patient in the decision-making and having the patient understand what the problem may be is important for the patient to have the best outcomes.
I try my best to restore the patient to their normal functional status so they can return to doing the things that they enjoy most doing without pain or loss of function."
