Dr. Cummings' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cummings "Dr. Cummings seeks to exhaust non-surgical treatments prior to pursuing surgical intervention. Many joint pains, even from severe arthritis can be adequately treated without surgery. Weight loss, medications, physical therapy, home exercise programs, various injections, bracing and at times assistive walking devices can enable patients to live active lifestyles and avoid surgery."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cummings "As an orthopaedic surgeon I try to treat each patient as I would treat my own family member. Whether treating acute injuries or chronic conditions, my goal is to work with patients to get them back to their active lifestyles."
