Care Philosophy

Although trained as a Surgeon after may years providing care to professional Athletes a non surgical approach is usual the course of treatment, most often the quickest way to go. Surgery is the last course of action. As one of my professors always said- there isn't anything that cannot be made worse by Surgery beware of Knife Happy Surgeons. Treat all people with respect and dignity as if they were your own.Read more
