Philosophy of Care

Treatment of orthopedic conditions requires more than a technical fix of the problem. My philosophy of taking care of patients requires taking the time to listen and understand their concerns and issues. I believe that educating patients and families is very important to help them engage in the process of healing. I feel fortunate to cover virtually every hip problem from birth until adulthood including hip dysplasia, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), Perthes disease and Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis (SCFE) and traumatic injuries to the hip.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

After completing extensive training, including pediatric orthopaedics and hip preservation surgery, Dr. Eduardo Novais went to the University of Colorado as the Director of the Hip Program at Children’s hospital Colorado. After four years he joined the Orthopedic Center and the Child and Young Adult Hip Preservation Program at Boston Children’s Hospital.
