Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Deniel "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.

in Grand Rapids, MI |
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.
