I don't see patients only as diseases or conditions to be treated but try to put myself in their shoes. The principle of maximization of conservative care until exhausted is my belief. When surgery is recommended, I try to convey typical patient experience. For joint replacement surgery, models, handouts, and preoperative teaching classes are used to minimize patient apprehension by education. Patients are encouraged to have family members present in order to assist in decision making.
