      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Marans' Care Philosophy

      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.
