Philosophy of Care
I have practiced orthopedic surgery for over 30 years. I began my practice at Sunnyvale
Medical Clinic in 1983 after completing my training at Stanford University Medical
Center. My philosophy of care is to treat my patients like family members. I make
a lifetime commitment to my patients.
When asked by my colleague how I
have maintained such a high patient satisfaction rating, my success is attributable
to my patients' satisfaction with their surgical outcomes and to my commitment to
their care. I foster an environment that puts my patients at ease, and I listen and
address their concerns. I understand that patients have many questions about their
surgery, and I am committed to answering them. I have been told by my patients that
I have made connections with them that engender trust.
My approach to patient
care is comprehensive and specialized care. Today most surgeons are limited to practicing
a specific subspecialty. I have received specialized fellowship training in multiple
areas of orthopedic surgery. Therefore I have the ability to integrate this knowledge
in order to perform the most skillful evaluations that facilitate achieving the best
possible surgical outcomes.
A significant part of my practice is joint
replacement surgery where I employ the latest modalities including computer assisted
navigation. Whenever possible I perform the most minimally invasive surgical techniques.
For example, I use the Anterior Approach for hip replacement surgery in order to minimize
trauma to tissues, to facilitate a faster recovery time, and to minimize the risk
of complications such as dislocations. Because of my vast experience performing joint
replacement surgeries, I also perform complex revision surgeries of knees and hips.
people contemplate surgery, they have questions, concerns, and fears. I spend whatever
amount of time that is necessary to answer their questions and to educate them about
the surgical procedure and the recovery process. I want my patients to feel confident
about their decision to undergo surgery and to realize that they will receive excellent
and compassionate care.
Lastly, I love the field of orthopedic surgery, and I believe that this also has had an important impact on my ability to help restore patients' function and improve the quality of their lives.
