Dr. Kanel's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kanel "Children require special care. I have devoted my professional life to providing the most expert musculoskeletal care for children and adolescents that is available, equivalent to any university or children's hospital. I have done this in a community hospital setting because I feel the care can be as good, if not better, than in a children's hospital with more personalized care. I understand the relationship between parent and child and use that bond to aid in providing the best care possible."
