Our Approach to Treating Patients
Our staff works as a team to give you personal, effective communication and the best of care. We are committed to delivering to our patients the best medical and orthopedic care available. We believe the most important aspect of providing quality care is listening to the needs of patients and presenting treatment options to the patient.
Surgery is only one of many treatment options. Many patients never need to have surgery. Many times physical therapy, medications, injections or immobilization might be all that is needed. We work closely with local physical therapists who, like our orthopedic providers, believe in conservative methods of treatment. If surgery is needed, Winneshiek Medical Center physical therapists are also keen in helping the rehabilitation process.
