The practice of medicine and orthopedic surgery requires skills in listening to your patient. Examination and delivering information to your patient in a manner that is understandable and clear. Most of the conditions I treat are not mysterious. If patients are able to understand it goes a long way to accomplishing the goal of return to a more normal lifestyle. The true meaning of physician is "teacher". The goal of my profession is restoration of function. Treatment is evidence based .
