Philosophy of Care 

"Providing excellent care of a physical injury, whether surgical or non-surgical, is the primary goal of my practice. However, I also feel it is important for physicians to recognize there are often other issues that may accompany the injury — whether they be social, emotional or intellectual. I feel that understanding the athlete and their entire response to injury is important in obtaining an excellent result after treatment. I also strongly encourage the team approach of working with the athlete, their families and other care providers, including physical therapists and certified athletic trainers, as I think this is the most reliable way to obtain consistently good results for my patients."
