We specialize in orthopedics, orthopedic spine surgery, joint replacement surgery, and orthopedic trauma, and treat common and complex musculoskeletal disorders and injuries of the upper and lower extremities and spine (vertebrae, disks), including malformations, deformities, diseases, injuries, and complex fractures. We seek the least invasive treatment that will be most effective; which in some cases is not surgery. When surgery is recommended, patients can be assured that we have taken rigorous steps to determine that this is the correct treatment choice and to identify the surgical option that is best.
