Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Manner "Many patients express interest in minimally-invasive approaches to hip and knee surgery. I believe that this type of surgery, though technically challenging, offers many benefits to the patient, including less tissue injury, less post-operative pain, faster rehabilitation, and a shorter hospital stay. We also emphasize a multimodal pain management pathway, because reducing pain is key to a successful recovery."
