First of all, I believe in listening to the patient. Many times the patient will tell you what you need to discover the true cause of their distress in the first few minutes. Secondly, I believe that every opportunity should be given to manage orthopedic conditions without surgery if possible. If surgery is the best answer then it should be done as expertly as and as minimally invasive as possible. To that end, I never use staples to close wounds and always pursue a plastics quality closure.
