My Approach to Treating Patients
My goal is to guide each patient, regardless of age and athletic goal, into the best, individualized treatment program that will allow a rapid return to a healthy, active, and pain-free lifestyle. I believe that successful outcomes are the result of treating every patient as an equal partner. Each individual has different goals and needs. While some orthopedic injuries are best treated with surgery, many can be solved with noninvasive or minimally invasive techniques, and physical therapy. I treat every patient as an athlete whether his or her goal is to finish a specific race, simply hike or swim, or compete at a professional level.
