"I am the most conservative orthopedic surgeon. There is very little that can't have at least a trial of non-operative care. I never operate only on MRI findings. A rotator cuff tear or a torn cartilage in a 50-year old does not "require" surgery unless a trial of non-operative care has failed. I take great pride in taking care of all aspects of orthopedics. The patient doesn't need to see multiple doctors for different problems."
