I believe in a strong relationship between the surgeon and patient. In our office you will meet with me before and after your surgery. Surgery is not just about having the technical skills to do the procedure , it is also about doing the right procedure or choosing not to operate at all. I have been practicing surgery for over 25 years and 20 years in Fort Collins. I try to provide high quality cost effective care. I try to do procedures in ways that speed patient recovery. I understand that patients are taking time away from their families and work to address medical issues. I believe physicians should respect patient’s time by running on time as much as possible.
