Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schlegel "My patients constantly remind me what is most important in their treatment is not my experience...the years of training or the thousands of surgeries, but listening to them and working to help them reach their own goals, whether those goals be returning to intense competition or simply maintaining an active lifestyle."
