Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schilling "Whether it's an injured high school athlete, a weekend warrior with tennis elbow, or an elderly patient with arthritis, Dr. Schilling's focus is on helping patients achieve their functional goals.

His philosophy of care revolves around helping each patient regain function in a safe, timely manner. In most cases, a non-operative course of treatment will suffice. However, an operative approach may lead to a quicker and better resolution of the problem. After a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Schilling will work with you to make the appropriate decision for your specific situation.

Direct involvement of both the patient and involved family members in deciding the course of treatment is of paramount importance. He welcomes all patient questions, concerns, and expectations for recovery."

Dr. Schilling is an amazing hand surgeon. He is very patient and kind. He explained what would happen during my surgery and recovery. He actually called me at home in order for me to change appointment locations so he could get a better x-ray of my finger. He is truly a caring doctor.

He is a wonderful kind listening doctor, who took my mashed up hand from an accident and made it whole. I highly recommend him! He even called me personally to see how I was doing!
