This content was provided by Dr. Pritchett "My surgical practice teaches me that technical skill is the mastery of the complex. It takes years and a lot of listening and experience to understand the nuances of joint resurfacing and replacement surgery. Surgical technique is not a commodity that can be bought or sold. I look carefully at my outcomes and publish my results in peer reviewed journals.
Survivorship of a patient and implant is not synonym for true wellness. Resumption of a completely autonomous lifestyle and return to all activities is the goal.
My favorite came from a patient "Though modest in demeanor Dr. Pritchett acts boldly in the interest of his patients". I live this each day and with each patient."
