Dr. Rasmussen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rasmussen "Allowing people to remain independent and active, especially as they age is an important part of my practice. This is a multifactorial process and the patient become part of the TEAM to improving their health and well being. Many patients find improvement through conservative treatment, however, surgery sometimes is necessary for optimal results. Patients with significant arthritis, that has failed conservative treatment, in their hips and knees, live 4 years longer after joint replacement surgery with a much higher quality of life, than those who avoid surgery."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rasmussen "I spend quality time with each patient, listening carefully to their symptoms and problems. Each patient is an individual and requires treatment that is unique to their specific issues."
