Practice Philosophy: An educated patient is empowered to make decisions that are right for them. I work with each individual to provide education and options for the treatment of their orthopaedic condition. I use plain english and drawings to make sure my patients understand their condition and what is necessary to restore function. In this way we form a team to work together toward improved health.
