For me, the patient always comes first. Most patients have already done extensive research into their condition prior to seeing me. I believe that an interactive approach with patients will lead us to a mutually agreed upon treatment plan. I hope to give my patients the opportunity for an improved quality of life with less pain, better function and improved outlook for their future.
I chose orthopaedics because I prefer interacting with a wide variety of patients, from the young to the elderly, in a way that allows me to improve their quality of life. I enjoy helping patients get better, get stronger and have less pain. I enjoy the opportunity to return patients to their pre-injury level of activity, whether it's golf, tennis, hiking or whatever their leisure or sport activity may be.
