Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Huff Jr "As an orthopedic surgeon, I believe it is important to help get my patients back to their active lifestyle as quickly and as pain free as possible. I make it a point to provide open and honest communication with my patients, and give them every option, from conservative treatments such as physical therapy to surgical options, in order to find the right treatment for them. As a prior professional baseball player, I understand the importance of being active and doing activities that you enjoy."
