      I visited Dr. Pospisil's office because of the pain I had in my lower back. He is such a great doctor and he has an amazing staff. He really helped me with the pain and now I'm much better, all thanks to him.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Pospisil's Care Philosophy

      I attempt to provide complete and caring options to all of my patients. IT IS IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE THEM WITH AN UNDERSTANDING AS TO WHAT THEY MAY HAVE AS WELL AS WHAT ROLE THEY CAN PLAY TO FACILITATE CURING AND OR PREVENTING THE CONIDITION THEY HAVE CHOSEN TO SEE BE ABOUT. Surgical options are but only one part of the spectrum towards improving their function and returning them to full activities.

      Dr. Pospisil says...

      Received additional specialized training in reparative procedures in the knee in an attempt to avoid or delay the necessity of total joint arthroplasty. This is a specialized procedure known a u subchondroplasty  which involves an injection of a bony paste that stabilizes the area as well as attracts new stem cells to repair the subchondral damage.
