My Approach to Care
"The opportunity to care for children who have acute orthopedic issues or long-term challenges is a tremendous privilege. My role as a pediatric orthopedic surgeon is to partner with children and their families. It's my job to help families make very difficult decisions about their child's care by helping them understand the problem, the available treatment options, and the implications of those options. I work with the child, the family and other care team members to provide care at the highest level."
