Dr. Kassab's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kassab "I always knew I wanted to be a surgeon when going to medical school. It wasn't until my final year of medical school that I discovered orthopedics. Once I realized there was a specialty that allowed me to rebuild broken or worn out bones and joints in the body, I knew it was for me. I can't imagine doing anything else. I love what I do! I enjoy getting to know my patients. I am blessed to be able to do what I do. I am rewarded everyday when I see my patients pain free and active again."

Dr. Kassab is the best.! I have had both knees replaced 13 years apart. He will not not operate unless absolutely necessary. He will listen and will answer all of your inquires. Highly experienced. I hear the same comments from his other patients when I have been in his office or hospital.
