Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Charters "As a Henry Ford Joint Replacement surgeon, I enjoy getting to know my patients and the activities they enjoy.  By learning about my patients and their treatment goals, I am able to develop a personalized treatment plan to help them return to the activities they love.  I like to have an open discussion with my patients and their family members about all available options to treat their hip or knee arthritis.  I like to discuss not only surgery but also treatment options without surgery."

Dr. Charters explained everything very well and easy enough to understand. He was also very willing to answer any questions that I had. I also, felt confident that everything was clean and sterility was not broken during surgery, due to all the little things that were done.
