Philosophy of Care

I believe that a multidisciplinary approach is key for the highest quality care and best patient outcomes. In addition to collaborating with other specialists, I also partner with my patients, involving them in decisions on the most appropriate treatments for their unique condition and situation. Lastly, I use the most innovative techniques for the least invasive treatment and fastest recovery for the patients in my care.
