Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Means Jr "I try to view things from a patient's perspective and discuss with patients their thoughts and concerns regarding their upper extremity issue(s). My goal is to explain potential risks and benefits for treatment choices and let patients choose the option they feel is best for them. I try to avoid surgery for people unless necessary or if we've exhausted nonoperative treatment options."

in Baltimore, MD |
I am so glad my Orthopedic surgeon referred me to Dr. Means! He is not a Doctor who wants to rush a patient to the operating room unless it is absolutely necessary. He will look at the problem, explain the nature of the injury and then discuss the options. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Besides, Union Memorial is world renowned for their Hand Center!
