My mission is to provide quality orthopaedic and spinal opinion with minimal surgical intervention to promote wellness, to relieve suffering and to restore health as humanely as it can be done at the highest value for all concerned.
After years of surgical practice I have taken a conscious decision not to operate. Unfortunately too many operations are being performed. Surgery has inherent risks and if surgery is performed when it is not necessary, it would be subjecting patients to unnecessary risks. I see patients and provide advice and opinion. I perform injections into the spine and other joints. I particularly like to see patients who have doubts on their diagnosis, unsure about surgery or patients who are not better after surgery. I believe we can live with less pain and discomfort by wearing proper shoes and using ergononomic seating. These measures would prevent long term harm and hopefully delay premature arthritis.
