Care Philosophy

I strive to help my patients regain and maintain their gainful use of the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and hands. I do my best to ensure that personal and unhurried attention can be provided to each patient spending additional time teaching them about their problems so they leave with a good understanding of the cause, treatment, and prognosis for their condition. I individualize treatment for each patient as each patient presents with their own unique circumstances leading to their condition often varying not only from occupation, recreation or hobby, but also from one limb to the other as each upper extremity typically specializes in different tasks based upon hand dominance.

Patient Comments (1)
in Las Vegas, NV |
I've had a right total shoulder replacement and a left reverse shoulder replacement. I consider both highly successful. It has relieved serious debilitating pain and has permitted almost return to complete range of motion. As I write this, I'm still in physical therapy with the left and this is going smoothly.
