      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. Lawson's Care Philosophy

      While the technical realities of general surgery are often straight-forward, a patient's overall condition and co-morbidities often make the decision making process complex. I encourage my patients to take an active role in their care by providing information so that patients can participate in the decision making and appropriately evaluate risks with regard to surgical treatment of their disease process.
