Welcome to Our Practice
My approach to treating patients
As a graduate of Yale Medical School and training in one of the leading residency programs in New York City, I bring more than 15 years of orthopaedic experience to my practice. In addition, I've completed a post-residency Fellowship program in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery to complement my broad experience in general orthopaedics. You can be assured my clinical credentials are excellent.
From the very first visit, you will see that I take a highly personal and interactive approach to caring for my patients. We develop a dialogue, through which my patients understand the diagnostic process, their own unique problem, their treatment choices, and the recovery process. My practice also offers helpful patient education resources in print or on-line formats to help make your decision-making, treatment, and recovery as quick and pain-free as possible.
I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand their condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that avenue in depth.
Surgery is only one of many treatment options. Many of my patients never need to have surgery - many times rehabilitation of the injured area is all that is needed. I work closely with a team of local physical therapists who, like me, believe in conservative methods: If an injury can be rehabilitated without surgery, that is what should be done. I inform my patients of all the treatment options they have for an injury, and what the advantages and disadvantages are of each option. I believe that my staff and I may be your most valuable resource for any thoughts or concerns you have, which is why we are here.
