As an Orthopedic Sports Medicine Specialist, I understand it is important to treat not merely symptoms, but causes. The body must be treated as a whole. Both the elite athlete and the weekend warrior alike, want to get back to 100% function as soon as possible. Often, surgery is not necessary, as other therapeutic methods are more effective, but when necessary, patients must be fully informed of all options, and base decisions on all available data and outcomes. The goal is complete recovery.
