Philosophy of Care
My philosophy is to take the time needed to make sure patients fully understand all of the information about their condition and surgery - I don't believe you should have to navigate it alone. My focus has always been to perform surgery with an excellent result and ongoing support. My goal is to make sure patients know that my commitment to helping them continues throughout their recovery.
