Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fagelman "I believe in a conservative, non-operative approach to all orthopedic care when possible. Most shoulder problems can and should be initially treated with non-operative care.  Therapy is an incredible tool than can produce incredible results.  However, there are times when surgery is the best (not necessarily the only) solution to a particular problem.  It is my job to match the best treatment to each individual patient."
