Care Philosophy

My orthopedic practice focuses entirely on treatment of the shoulder and knee. I believe limiting your practice in this way allows one to provide the highest level of orthopedic care. Technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace and I spend a great deal of time on continuing medical education vis a vis literature, resident education, lectures, and collaboration with my renowned colleagues throughout the country. Always using the latest technological procedures and carefully addressing each patient's needs, I am able to provide my patients with the best outcomes. Each patient is a priority to both me and to my staff. We work together to help each individual reach their maximum potential and return to their active lifestyle as quickly as possible. If surgery is necessary, I utilize a minimally invasive approach which affords the patient a less painful postoperative course. This in conjunction with a customized physical therapy program with my highly skilled therapists allows the most rapid recovery possible. ------WebKitFormBoundary9nI2iDobHF7uJm4g Content-Disposition: form-data; name='physician_image'; filename=''Read more

Took my brother there who is mentally handicapped. He was considerate, explained things to him and there was minimal pain in the procedure of a cortisone injection into his shoulder.
