Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nakamura "As a Centura Health Physician Group provider at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center, I believe in treating the whole person rather than a single illness or injury. With a focus on compassionate care, an emphasis on quality and access to the best tools and technology, I provide a patient-centered approach to health and healing for every patient. The practice specializes in orthopedic surgery, sports medicine and total joint replacement of the knee and hip. Our goal is to return you to a full and active life."
