My ways

As an experienced physician with more than 25 years of specialization in orthopaedics, I take a highly personal approach to caring for my patients. I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand their condition: how it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that avenue in depth.

My Practice

My practice focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of hip and knee disorders including total joint replacement surgery. I have a particular interest in minimally invasive surgery and have performed around 4000 minimally invasive computer-assisted total knee replacements and over 2000 minimally invasive direct anterior approach total hip replacements. I routinely perform 11-20 joint replacements and see approximately 100 patients in clinic each week. I apologize in advance if it takes a while to get in to see me, but there are only 24 hours in a day!

My Thoughts

The surgeon has the main impact on the success of the surgery, but the patient has the main impact on the success of the recovery. An educated, committed, determined patient optimizes the results of his or her treatment. Learn about your disease process and its treatment. Enlist your friends and family in your recovery team. Prepare and plan for a superior outcome.
