Patient Care Philosophy
I think that getting to know a patient by establishing rapport and talking to them, then performing a good physical exam is the cornerstone to orthopedic practice; imaging and other studies are important but ancillary.
People appreciate being listened to and like a hands on exam as it gives them confidence that we take the time to show them that we care.
I enjoy being around my wife and kids, reading history, old school calisthenics and climbing.
We like to perform on and treat patients that need joint restoration procedures such as shoulder joint replacement arthroplasty and shoulder arthroscopic procedure from rotator cuff repairs to labral injuries.
