      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. Fender's Care Philosophy

      I choose to practice medicine to be an advocate, confidante, as well as a trusted friend that patients can turn to for some of the most difficult things they face in life. A physician must be able to listen, understand, reassure and provide trustworthy answers and advice to patients as they open up their lives to their physician.
