Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McDermott "At SRO, Dr. McDermott works in collaboration with 7 other multispecialist orthopedists and a team of experienced physical therapists. Dr. McDermott specializes in sports medicine, arthroscopy, as well as general orthopedic surgery. He places high value on the role of the physical therapist in the treatment of his patients and has found that personalized treatment protocols can be formulated that not only maximize surgical outcomes, but in many cases can eliminate the need for surgery altogether."
