Practice Philosophy

“My patient care philosophy is rooted in two things: availability and communication. My role is to see patients as efficiently as I can. People are motivated to get back to the things they like to do as quickly as they can. Forming a bond with patients, listening very carefully to fully understand their needs and desired performance-driven outcomes, is essential. No two surgeries are alike. They each have their challenge to determine the right thing to do. I love fixing things and working with my hands and the surgery component of orthopedics called me to the specialty.”
