Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sasson "Dr. Sasson specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgeries of the knees and shoulders, treating torn cartilage and torn shoulder cuffs. He prefers to perform arthroscopic surgery, with which only small incisions are made and the patient can often go home the same day.

To prevent sports injuries, Dr. Sasson encourages athletes to stretch prior to exercising. He recommends that if one has not exercised for a while, he or she should start slowly. Of course, it is also important to eat properly and maintain healthy weight. "
