Dr. Sharpe's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sharpe "At 7, I really liked digging and thought I was going to be a ditch digger but that professional goal didn't last very long. My Mother was an orthopedic surgeon and in Junior High I decided that I too wanted to be a doctor. I thought I'd go into primary care until my third year of medical school when I realized that I wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon, too. I think it was the opportunity to fix things. I love the tools that we get to work with as surgeons and the fact that we get to FIX our patients. I really enjoy what I do. I like working with my patients. I think my patients see that I care because I spend time to listen to each one of them. I also really enjoy my surgery days, when I get to work with those power tools."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sharpe "My mission is to help you maintain an active, healthy lifestyle through care of the musculo-skeletal system. I specialize in small incision hip and knee replacement, all inside ACL reconstruction, and stabilization of swimmer's shoulder."
