I believe that patient treatment needs to be tailored to the individual. Not all patients with the same diagnosis will benefit from surgical intervention. Some patients are more appropriately treated with conservative, non-surgical means including physical or occupational therapy, injections or splinting. When surgery is the treatment of choice the patient needs to be appropriately informed of the details of the procedure, anticipated recovery and rehabilitation, as well as potential risks and complications.
I enjoy hiking and skiing. My wife Nanette and I have two daughters, Lauren and Elizabeth, and a son, Matthew.
