Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Franz "As an Orthopaedic Surgeon, I strive to improve my patients' function, strength, and activity level. I am a fellowship-trained surgeon in Sports Medicine, and I am focused on improving quality of life through evaluation and examination, injections, therapy, and surgical intervention when appropriate. I specialize in minimally invasive knee, shoulder, and hip arthroscopy with the goal of restoring and preserving function in both high-level athletes and the occasional "weekend warrior.""
