Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Blum "I have been in the medical field for 32 years, and have worked from scrubbing the floors in operating rooms to nursing to orthopaedic surgery.  Success in my field is best seen when I have a patient that was unable to function, come back to me walking without pain, or throwing without pain.  One of the best compliments I receive is when my patients refer a friend or family member to me.  I am truly grateful they have entrusted me with the care of a loved one."
