SURGERY  

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a meniscus tear, a bunion, hip or knee arthritis, even a herniated disc does not have to mean surgery. We are not opposed to surgery, but we think that it should be the last resort. With surgery, there is always a risk of complications. It is stressful, invasive, expensive and brings with it a long recovery and rehabilitation period. All that, and it generally addresses just the effects of a problem instead of the problem itself. While surgery may be the best option in some cases, there are many procedures for which long-term outcomes are no different than for no treatment at all.

We are able to relieve if not resolve most patients’ symptoms with conservative care. Releasing scar tissue, restoring joint mobility and re-training harmful movement habits are just a few ways to address these issues. That is why we are happy to provide you with a well-researched second opinion and take the time to discuss all available options and alternatives with you.
