He explained all options clearly. I never thought I would say that I enjoyed surgery, but I really did. No pain or discomfort. After the surgery everything was much clearer. Also, whites are much whiter.

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.
