Patient Care Philosophy

An informed patient is a satisfied patient, and with understanding your condition, the scene is set to ensure the best possible treatment outcome.

Each patient is unique and by considering all lifestyle factors of each individual, formulating a tailor-made treatment plan is possible.

After first getting to know you, I will seek to inform you of all possible treatment options before assisting you in choosing one. I strive to provide honest, informed and unbiased recommendations regarding non-surgical and surgical treatments, their risks and benefits.

Quality of your care is reliant on a multidisciplinary team approach, starting with your family general practitioner and involving physiotherapy, occupational therapy, biokineticists, and if necessary, a psychologist.

Being able to return to your previous level of functioning and independence will be the main aim of care, whether that involves independent mobility around the home or participation in professional sports.
