Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Arnold "My areas of interest include the treatment of sport-related injuries and cartilage disorders in athletes of all ages. I focus on injuries to the knee with special interests in cartilage repair, ligamentous injuries, meniscus injury and disorders of the patellofemoral joint (knee cap).

Fantastic experience. Very smooth clinic process. Heard from all of our friends he was the doc to see for knee problems in the area. Was not disappointed. Great bedside manner and compassionate. Hospital and Clinic experience were unlike anything we experienced before.
