  • I offer individual care and attention to details.
  • I offer a choice of implants and materials.
  • I provide patients with insight about implants and materials used by me.
  • I use a minimally invasive approach.
  • My anesthetist will ensure that the operation and post operative period are pain free.
  • My physical therapist is committed to help you to get maximum movement after surgery.
  • My cost is affordable as I am an independent surgeon.
