Message to Patients:
“My training in both Family Practice and Orthopaedics has provided me with a unique perspective in caring for patients with orthopaedic conditions and the Orthopaedic Institute of Southern Illinois is an ideal place to provide that care. Being able to work closely with other orthopaedic surgeons at the Orthopaedic Institute provides both years of clinical experience and access to the most up-to-date surgical techniques. The Institute provides the facilities for state-of-the-art diagnostic evaluation, coordinated physical/occupational therapy and surgical intervention. Most importantly, our staff of healthcare professionals is dedicated to the long term well being of our patients and their families.”
