Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Marans "I believe that all patients are entitled to quality orthopaedic surgical care and do my best to ensure that I live up to that standard. I treat most conditions of the upper and lower extremities and if I feel it is necessary will refer patients out for further, more specialized care when indicated. It is often difficult for patients to be seen quickly by an Orthopedic Surgeon. I can always see patients within 1-2 days and often on the day of injury. It is also common for patients to wait for hours to see the doctor once they arrive. I endeavor to keep waiting times to a minimum."
