Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mehserle "One of the goals of my orthopedic practice is to diminish the impact of a traumatic event or a reconstructive surgery on a patient's quality of life. Reduced surgical trauma with minimally invasive techniques as well as improvements in rehabilitation and pain control have led to a shorter periods of disability and a more timely return to normal activities. it is exhilarating to see this culminate in a real life situation.

Our physicians will gladly provide services to any patient with a Medicare Advantage (PPO) plan at the Medicare Part B Allowable rate whether they are contracted with the plan or not. Our company will also work with patients that do not have insurance coverage or are part of high deductible plans. "

Dr. Mehserlie is tops in my book. Not only did he do my total knee replacement with excellent results and a very small scar but has recommended ways to alleviate pain without surgery. I was in a very serious car accident earlier in life crushing both ankles and breaking other bones, I've seen my share of Orthopedic docs. Dr. Mehserlie does not push surgery which is huge. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.

I have been a patient of Dr Mehserle's since 2009 and in that time have sought his care regarding foot, shoulder, hip, knee and finger problems. His examinations are thorough and he asks pertinent questions to clarify the cause of pain. He also answers my questions with explanations easy to understand and spends as much time as I feel necessary to deal with the issue. I especially appreciate his quiet and patient manner and the empathy he shows when giving injections.
