Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Girling V "Knee and hip replacements are often considered elective procedures, but for patients living with the pain associated with osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in the knee or hip, surgery to repair or replace the damaged joint won't seem like it's elective. For them, it's necessary. Then to have them come back in the office and tell me how much it changed their life that's so rewarding."

Dr. Girling V was very polite, courteous, caring, and compassionate. He did a very good job with my hip surgery including only making a very small incision and closing it with dermabond to complete the surgery.
