“I believe in treating my patients as I would treat a member of my own family. I hope they leave ValleyOrtho feeling like they have a clear diagnosis and treatment plan and that all of their questions have been answered. The greatest satisfaction I receive as an orthopaedic surgeon is seeing my patients restored to full health and function. It is a privilege to be a trusted partner in that process.”
These Patient Playbooks are custom guides developed by Dr. Grillot and his team to provide his patients with evidence based tools to best prepare for and recover from surgery.
