Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cantrell "A Goal Oriented Approach: "Each patient's recovery goals are distinct - to restore function, return to the team, get back to work, or to resume a favorite activity abandoned long ago. My aim is to fully understand my patients' orthopaedic problem and recovery goals, then partner with them to help achieve these goals."

Part of the Team: "I see the patient and me as a team, working toward a common goal. From diagnosis, to treatment, to rehabilitation, I am committed to doing everything within my power to help our team reach its goals.""

Dr Cantrell is an excellent doctor, he fixed both of my shoulders of which one had 100% rotator cuff tear, has a delightful personality, and I would not hesitate to recommend him or use him again. I would give him six stars if I could :-)

I was in so much pain when I went to see Dr. Cantrell. He assured me that he could fix me up and he did. This dr knows his medicine and has a wonderful bedside manner. Couldn’t ask for a better doctor.
