As a trained specialist of sports medicine and arthroscopy I treat a myriad of shoulder, hip, knee, elbow and ankle injuries. Specific rehabilitation for these injuries and disorders are prescribed and supervised by myself as the treating physician. Most injuries can be treated non-operatively, but when surgery is necessary, arthroscopic small incision techniques are generally utilized. These techniques allow for quicker recovery, less pain, and improved cosmesis.
Before a treatment plan is implemented, I believe patients should be fully educated about their condition, so that they may participate in the decision-making process. Each patient has different functional demands and lifestyle expectations, and treatment should be tailored to meet each patient's individual needs.
When surgical treatment is indicated, I take the time to explain the risks and benefits of surgery to each patient. It is very important for the patient to understand the details of the rehabilitation process, as well the expected outcome after surgery.
