Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Burgdorff "As an orthopaedic surgeon I enjoy the relationships that I have with my patients. I listen to their problems and the challenges they face. I explain what to reasonably expect from each treatment option that is available to them. I ask myself what I would choose if I faced this decision for myself and what I would recommend to a family member if they were facing the same challenge in this setting. I can then help the patient choose a treatment option that they understand and are comfortable with."
