As an orthopedic trauma surgeon, I often meet my patients on one of the worst days of their lives. I help reassure them and explain their various injuries. Together we come up with a plan of care and begin down the road to recovery. My foremost goal is to do everything I can to get my patients back to their pre-injury selves.
