Care Philosophy

As a provider I treat my patients how I expect to be treated myself. I listen and after the patient has given me all of the needed information, we work together to decide on the best course of treatment.

At Optim Orthopedics, we know you're not yourself when even just one part of you is hurt. Because in orthopedics, everything is connected: bones, joints, ligaments, and cartilage. We're connected too. Our doctors cover every bone in the body and we work together as a team for our patients. We call our approach - Combined Strength, and we use it to get you back to you.

in bluffton, SC |
Dr. Sutherland has always taken the time to explain my pain. It is not always what I want to hear, but I like to hear the truth instead of being handled with kid gloves. He has treated my knee, my wrist, and my elbow. I have always, and will always refer my friends and family to him.

It all began with a broken foot, followed by a trip/fall which created more damage. Prior to visiting Dr. Sutherland I had seen two other doctors and an acupuncturist. I had spent five months in a soft boot with no improvement in the pain I was experiencing. Dr. Sutherland looked at my MRI and determined the broken bones were healed and the pain was the result of numerous neuromas and he treated them. Hurray! No more soft boot and I could walk without pain once again.

Was a new patient and he spent only a few minutes before telling me to go for the knee for surgery. Whoa !!!. He was in quite a hurry. Receptionists where not friendly either. Moves too fast for me.
