This content was provided by Dr. Longhofer "I specialize in restoring function and returning patients back to their work and activities. Hands are so important in everything we do, so I want to get my patients back to work, sports, and daily activities. I am focused on getting my patients their function back, including seeing each patient through the entire healing process.
While surgery is the primary treatment for many orthopaedic conditions, I also treats patients non-surgically if indicated for a particular problem and/or injury. Whatever the treatment plan the most rewarding part of my job is seeing my patients happy and functioning well."
