Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Salyer "I was very young when I knew I was going to be a doctor. I was always a good student. I enjoy the mechanical aspects of orthopedic surgery. It is gratifying to see the results in my patients, often fairly quickly. When I first went to medical school, I thought I was going to be a heart surgeon. I saw that the orthopedic residents were having more fun. I think there's less stress in this specialty because patients are healthy. After 26 years, most of my patients are my friends. I would encourage people to talk to my patients and the doctors that refer to me. That is the best way to find out what kind of doctor I am."
