Dr. Hesse strongly believes in a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to providing medical care to her patients. She provides comprehensive evaluations and treatments for acute and chronic spinal conditions, sports injuries in juveniles and adults, degenerative and inflammatory joint conditions, in addition to general musculoskeletal disorders for adult, pediatric, and geriatric patients.
She finds that both better and more lasting positive outcomes to care can be obtained by mindfully considering each patient’s unique functional and psychosocial requirements when outlining their treatment plans. As an Orthopedic Surgeon, however, Dr. Hesse recognizes when a patient’s condition requires surgical management, and will facilitate the appropriate surgical consultations as indicated.
Dr. Hesse also works with internists, alternative therapy practitioners, and psychologists to assist her patients in achieving optimal wellness. Dr. Hesse is privileged to endorse Salonpas®, topical OTC analgesic and anti-inflammatory products.
