Having dedicated their practices to offering patient-centered care, our sports medicine specialists understand that while an orthopaedic surgery, such as ankle arthroscopy, may be the best treatment for one patient, another patient may benefit more from a different solution, such as anti-inflammatory medication, an injection, or physical therapy from a trained physical therapist.
