Dr. Deniel's Care Philosophy

My goal as a Sports Medicine Orthopaedic surgeon is to work together with the patient to return them as quickly and safely as possible to both competive and recreation sports. Using therapy, strengthening and when necessary surgery. Avoiding recreational activities and sports because of pain or injury, should only be a last resort.

    Dr. Deniel repaired a torn meniscus on my right knee several years ago and to this date, I've had no problems with it. She is a kind and compassionate physician, explained (in easy to understand English) what the procedure would be and did a great job. I recommend her if you are in need of arthoscopic surgery.
