Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Glidden "Our primary objective is to treat disorders conservatively non operatively, to try and avoid or postpone surgery. When surgery is necessary, Dr. Glidden uses less invasive techniques, many done arthroscopically or through minimal incisions. This significantly reduces pain after surgery, shortens recovery time and lessens scarring. In many cases, patients may go home right after surgery."

Dr. Glidden and his staff made my 5th knee surgery so stressless it was wonderful. My sugary was scheduled promptly and started on time. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes to see him on any office visit. I have and will refer anyone that asks to this fabulous Dr.
