Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Strauss "Every patient gets professional orthopaedic care as if I was the patient. Personally I have had over seven surgical procedures of which six were Orthopaedic. So I have a feel for what the patient needs and wants. I believe in function for the patient as life is all about function. Immediate weight-bearing---fixing broken parts so that the patient can function like they were meant to. Secondary Specialty: Joint and bone reconstruction"
