Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Struhl "My goal is to give our patients the very best quality care, immediate access, and seamless services to quick diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of a wide range of orthopedic disorders with particular expertise in problems of the shoulders and knees. Every member of my practice is committed to the ideal that each patient is a whole person with an issue to address.  Recent advances have dramatically changed the way shoulder and knee problems are treated. To some people, the idea of orthopedic surgery conjures up images of large ugly incisions, bulky casts and braces, and long painful periods of rehabilitation. In reality, current treatment techniques have eliminated these unpleasant experiences.Even complex problems can now be treated with minimally invasive procedures on an outpatient basis, with a very early return to daily tasks as well as athletic endeavors. In my practice, we use the latest techniques and research advances to give our patients the very best care."

Dr. Struhl seemed very knowledgeable and recommended for me to see a foot specialist. Urgent care sent me to Dr. Struhl given they diagnosed an ankle injury, but it was a foot injury.

I wasted $3,000 dollars to get some stem injections that did not work. He also did a poor job in surgery. My leg became infected and I have a terrible scar.
