I liked the idea that he performed surgery only after all other options had failed. While repairing my torn meniscus with orthroscopic surgery I was able to walk on it in 24 hours. Recovery was amazing considering he was able to fix 3 other issues during the surgery. You are never rushed during any office visit. He takes the time to explain all issues and options and answers all questions in layman's terms.
