“I believe very strongly that my role as a surgeon is to help every patient make the best decision for his or her needs. Joint replacement surgery is an elective operation done to improve a patient’s quality of life; therefore, I want my patients to be completely informed prior to surgery so they are mentally and physically ready for the operation.”
