About

Professional Statement

"Innovative methods, precise concepts, and much experience are applied to the evaluation of each new patient, seeking the most specific and appropriate solution for each patient's care. Planning for surgery includes a complete review of options and often a presentation of many prior similar cases we have performed, with a range of representative results. We believe that principles underlying your care should be understood and agreed to by you before we proceed with surgery. We strive to provide you with a safe and comfortable experience, concluding with the best attainable result."
