Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Werner "As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I believe in addressing the entire patient through coordinated medical care in addition to taking care of musculoskeletal problems. The overall health of a patient is just as important as addressing problems from arthritis or other orthopedic conditions. In addition, by being one of few surgeons in Albuquerque doing hip replacement through a direct anterior approach, recovery is faster and hospitalization shortened, getting back to more normal life more quickly."
