Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Frankel "Dr. Frankel views surgery as the last treatment option, after appropriate nonsurgical therapies have been tried. Many patients are successfully treated with conservative modalities such as medication or physical therapy, and never require surgery. When surgery is necessary, patients can be assured that Dr. Frankel utilizes the most advanced surgical techniques to ensure the best surgical outcome. He remains at the forefront of emerging technologies with the understanding that no surgical technique is ever introduced until he is convinced of its safety and effectiveness."
