Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McCandless "I believe that mobility and quality of life go hand in hand. Surgery is an excellent solution to many problems but not the only one. I use all technologies and techniques from computer navigation to robotic surgery to minimally invasive techniques. My goal is to understand the patients needs and physical demands to come up with a solution tailored to their needs."
