I believe that a physician is not merely someone who provides a diagnosis and prescription, but someone who becomes a partner with a patient and their families to guide them through the treatment and recovery process. As your physician, you can expect me to not only be available to answer your questions, but also to provide the highest quality and most advanced orthopedic care. This includes arthroscopic and minimally-invasive techniques that facilitate an expedited recovery.
