Our Care Philosophy
Open Communication and Personal Attention
Each patient is unique, so our goal is to get to know you as a partner in your care. Open communication, personal attention, and shared decision-making provide the foundation for our relationship.
Comprehensive Physical Exam
We begin with a comprehensive physical examination using the most advanced imaging technology available. That enables us to provide you with an accurate diagnosis.
Develop Individualized Treatment Plan
For all of our patients, our goal is to develop an individualized treatment plan aimed at restoring the highest level of movement and function with the least risk.
Committed to Patient Education
Our practice is committed to patient knowledge so we will thoroughly discuss your condition and review all treatment options. For most, non-surgical treatments like lifestyle changes, medication, physical therapy and injections provide adequate relief from symptoms. Should your condition call for surgery, we are experienced and trained in the latest and most effective procedures, including minimally invasive surgical techniques and arthroscopy.
