My philosophy is simply to give each patient the best possible care. In hip and knee arthritis often times non-surgical care is the best. In my experience each patient is unique and there is no "right time" to do surgery. It is important to be patient and tailor the treatment to each individual. Once the pain becomes intolerable despite non-operative management we use a shared decision making program to decide whether it is time to do a joint replacement. The two criteria are bone on bone arthritis and severe pain that limits you from doing everyday activities despite non-operative treatments. GivIng each patient the best possible care requires an individualized approach. We emphasize communication, education and safety to achieve long lasting durable pain relief for patients with arthritic hips and knees.Read more
