      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Friele's Care Philosophy

      I enjoy developing long relationships with my patients. I feel that treating women is a special calling. While I really enjoy surgical procedures, I feel it is really important to find what is the best treatment for a patient, and frequently that is to NOT do surgery. I think it is really important to listen to the patient and determine what is both medically the best treatment and the one that fits the patient's life and their particular needs.
