"Our goal is to eliminate pain and restore function to allow our patients to live their lives to the fullest, while at the same time providing a pleasant overall patient experience. We take the team approach, most importantly including the patient as decision maker.
We educate patients on their pathology and on appropriate treatment options. The patient directs the team on carrying out the best treatment plan for them. Whether operative or non-operative, we are there to help our patients achieve their goals. We strive to achieve this in a timely fashion and be as available as able to our patients to assist them."
