Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. LaDouceur "As orthopaedic surgeons, AOS (Advanced Ortho & Spine) is fixated on restoring pain-free function to injured or diseased joints and spine. This often requires a very individualized approach, as there are typically multiple factors involved, and no two patients are exactly alike. There are numerous conservative options at our disposal, and surgery is always our last resort.  We utilize the most up-to-date techniques to ensure the greatest opportunity for a full recovery with our patients."

Patient Comments (1)

He was very nasty and disrespectful to me! He wouldn't listen to me, I feel, because I was a workers comp patient. Refused to give me any restrictions when returning to work. Even after I told him I was still hurting and had a 2nd incident that increased the amount of pain. NOTHING! Still had me on...more
