Dr. Franko's Care Philosophy
Patients are Partners. I believe that patients play a critical role in determining their treatment. All patients receive a thorough evaluation that includes learning about your injury, as well as your personal interests, occupation, hobbies, and lifestyle – factors that influence selecting an individualized treatment plan. I treat Patients, not Xrays. While imaging, such as xrays, CT scans, and MRIs have the ability to help identify problems and sources of pain, I focus on addressing each patient's concerns and fears. Treatment will be focused on you, not your test results. Not all Patients require Surgery. Sometimes the best treatment is not surgery. As my mentor Peter Stern says, "When a surgeon tells you not to have surgery, there's a message." I always consider the side effects and complications of surgery, and any recommendation for surgical treatment involves a careful consideration of both the risks and benefits.
