Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Seeds "With so many effective and minimally-invasive treatment options available, I can tailor treatments to the needs of patients. I focus on listening to patients and together developing a plan to return to a normal active lifestyle. Non-surgical options are always explored first. Whether it's getting back to playing a sport you love or enjoying time with family, a complete recovery is always the goal. I specialize in treating injuries (via arthroscopy) of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee and ankle."
