Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Larson III "My care philosophy is to treat patients like I would wish to be treated.  I try to keep you up and moving with as little downtime as possible.  I treat injuries with conservative efforts first and offer surgery only when necessary.  When I recommend surgery it is usually because there are no other options or because your injury will only get worse with time.  I use arthroscopic and minimally invasive options whenever possible and can speed your healing of tendon injuries with stem cell injections if indicated.  All of my patients are started on early therapy programs to be sure you heal as quickly and safely as possible."
