Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sandefur "I chose to become an Orthopedic Surgeon because I knew from an early age that I enjoyed helping people. I can help people who are in pain or have been injured be able to alleviate the pain and resume the lifestyle they want to enjoy. I chose to practice in a rural community because I want to be able to provide high quality Orthopedic care that they would expect in a larger community without having to travel there. "
