“Every patient and each situation is unique and as such, I want to get to know them and determine what is causing their pain, hurt or illness. I always listen to my patients with empathy and compassion and welcome their questions and active participation in developing an individualised treatment programme.”
“My goal is always to focus on a preservation modality using the latest evidence-based research including Orthobiologics medicine, prior to any surgery that may ultimately be necessary. My goal is to alleviate the pain, help patients recover from injury or illness. And to restore motion and function, getting them back into action in the quickest and safest time frame possible. As well, I like to personally keep in touch during the recovery and rehabilitation journey, being there to promptly address any complications that may arise.”
