Our Philosophy

We are conservative in our approach to surgery. We pursue all feasible alternatives to surgery before we consider surgery. These alternative options may include behavioral education, physical therapy, medication, or injections. We tailor the treatment plan to each individual.

Having surgery is a very stressful journey for most people. We recognize that both the body AND the mind are affected during the time period.

To help our patients through this journey, we treat both the body AND the mind.

We provide classes for our patients on what to expect during their surgery and recovery period.

We also teach our patients relaxation and coping techniques to help decrease pain and anxiety.

Watkins was a truck driver for over 50 years, which required him to stay seated 13 hours a day. He loved to bike, run, and kayak when he could, but driving a truck and sitting in the same position for hours on end inevitably takes a toll on your body.

“I worked until I was 75. Even before I retired, I was having pain. A lot of times, I’d climb into the truck, and it would take me a while to get adjusted, and when I would climb out of the truck, it would take some time just to stand up straight. I’ve had this pain for quite a long while, and I don’t know why I wasted all that time waiting,” said Watkins.

Watkins believed his leg pain would go away, but it never did.
