Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chandran "There are multitude of orthopedic conditions that I treat both non-operatively and operatively. My philosophy for patient care is to involve the patient in their care. The key to involving patients in their treatment plan is to clearly explain to them their diagnosis, the etiology for their diagnosis, and how their treatment plan will resolve their pain.  I make communication and having a good rapport with my patient's a priority.

Each treatment plan is catered to the patient.  Your symptoms dictate your treatment. I provide the latest techniques in orthopedics for your care."

For years I have had a painful and crippling experience with my right knee. All attempts to get relief failed until I met with Dr. Chandran and decided on a Total Knee Replacement. The result was a total success and I am now pain free in my knees. Thanks to Dr. Shaun Chandran..
