What to Expect

Each patient is treated with utmost respect and confidentiality. During the initial consultation, time is taken to understand, analyze, and discuss the findings, possible options for treatment, all risks, complications, and alternative methods of management. No consultation is rushed and time is allowed to address all of the patient's concerns. The concept of a reconstructive tree is utilized to arrive at the most appropriate treatment while minimizing invasive treatments and expediting rapid return to functionality. When appropriate, non-surgical management such as physical therapy will be included in the patient's treatment protocol.

As the patient places his or her trust in the physician, it is the physician's duty to recommend only what he or she truly believes to be in the patient's best interest. If the patient is not a candidate for treatment, the reasons for this are discussed. The patient is educated and prepared in-detail prior to the procedure. All surgical procedures are performed at an accredited and state-of-art surgical facility or at the Cedars Sinai or West Hills Hospitals as necessary. Only board certified anesthesiologists are involved in all surgical procedures as well. No procedure is rushed, and time is taken to ensure that each operation is well-planned and well-executed. On an individual basis some patients may be required to spend one or more nights at an aftercare facility or the hospital following surgery. Our out-of-town patients are asked to remain in Los Angeles until cleared by their doctor for the return home. Repeated follow-up visits after surgery and compliance with your surgeon's instructions, especially physical therapy regimens, are critical and recommended for optimal results.
