To paraphrase Sy Simms, "an educated patient is our best patient." We strongly believe an important part of our patient treatment is educating our patients about their orthopaedic condition and the various treatments available.

Unfortunately, much of the medical information on the Internet is incorrect, overly promotional, or confusing. Because of this, one of our goals is to help our patients find legitimate and reliable resources to use as needed.

Below are some links to sites containing information that we feel is generally worthwhile:
