As an orthopaedic trauma surgeon, my goal is to return my patients to the highest level of function as soon as possible after an injury. I take great pride in listening to my patients and understanding their individual needs. After educating my patients on their injury and the potential treatment options, we develop a treatment plan together that best fits their goals. I believe this is the art of medicine⎼creating personalized care with evidence based medicine.
