Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bissell "My goal is to develop the best physician-patient relationship possible. Listening carefully to your expectations and needs is critically important. Together we can explore treatment options for your diagnosis and choose the best fit for you. My focus is to enhance your quality of life and return you safely to the activities and sports that you enjoy. My practice has a specialty focus on arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. I also care for a wide variety of sports related injuries including rotator cuff tears, shoulder instability, knee ligament injuries, knee meniscus tears, hip labral tears, elbow ligament and tendon injuries, and arthritic conditions of the knee, hip, elbow and shoulder. I look to provide you with the information and tools with which to make the best decisions you can for your orthopedic needs. I work closely with other medical specialists and physical therapists to provide a comprehensive approach to your care."
