Dr. Curran's Care Philosophy
"My care philosophy involves educating my patients about their diagnosis and engaging them in the treatment decision process. I fully believe in exploring and exhausting all non-operative options before recommending surgery. If surgery is necessary I utilize arthroscopic or minimally invasive techniques when feasible to facilitate a more rapid recovery. Finally, I work to build a good rapport with my patients so that they are never uncomfortable asking questions regarding their health care."
