Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kung "Dr. Kung is a specialist in hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder surgery. He also handles many work-related injuries and has training in hip, knee and ankle injuries. Dr. Kung takes a conservative approach to patient care, including pain management and mobility improvement, using non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, physical and occupational therapy, steroid injections and arthroscopy. His surgical approach is to use the latest minimally invasive techniques, which enables his patients to incur less risk and pain, while producing maximum results. Dr. Kung s whole approach centers around having his patients return to their normal activities and lifestyle as quickly as possible."
