My Philosophy: I believe very strongly that “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” I do my very
best to get my patients' problems solved as simply as possible without the
need for unnecessary surgery.
“Simple solutions for simple problems.”
I also believe that education of a problem in words that the patient can
understand will give both of us the best chance for 100% recovery. I want
my patients to be able to perform all of the activities they wish to without
having their feet and ankles limit them.
“Life is short; and we need to live it while we can.”
