Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lindholm "As an orthopaedic surgeon, I believe in taking the time to listen to what my patients have to tell me. The physical exam and imaging studies all add more information to arrive at a diagnosis. I try to explain the problem in a way that is easily understood. I'll make treatment recommendations, and we'll come up with a treatment plan together. Surgery isn't always the answer. I treat my patients as I would want to be treated if I were the patient myself. Because I have been!"
