Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Weinsheimer "I am an early adopter of innovative approaches, but only if they are in the best interest of my patients. I strive to minimize pain and reduce the chance of future complications with minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. However, I believe than many surgeries are still best handled with open techniques because they are proven successful procedures. I feel strongly about the personalized approach to care that is practiced at Swedish. I believe families appreciate having a doctor that is focused on treating their child rather than training other doctors. It is amazing to work with children and see their incredible resiliency and ability to heal and recover so well."
