Dr. Bahu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bahu "Patient satisfaction is the most important part of what I do. I take it very personally when a patient is happy with the outcome of their surgery. The most rewarding part of my job is when my patients tell me that they've been able to get back to whatever activities they enjoy and that they've told their family and friends about their experience. I chose orthopedics so that I could improve the quality of my patients' lives by reducing pain and improving function of their ailing bones and joints."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bahu ""I chose shoulder/elbow/sports so that I can reach a wide range of patients with a variety of pathology. My practice includes everyone from the injured adolescent sports enthusiast to the elderly with an inability to lift their arm. My goal is always to reduce pain and get my patients back to their desired level of function, regardless of what that level might be. This goal might be achieved with surgical or non-­surgical methods, but all treatment options are considered." - Dr. Matt (Maher) Bahu"
