Specializing in Minimally Invasive and Arthroscopic Surgery of the Shoulders, Elbows, and Knees
There are non-surgical options for treating most orthopedic conditions and sports injuries; however, when surgery is indicated, Dr. Bennett is trained to provide his patients with the latest in minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery techniques. Minimally invasive surgery typically reduces the patient’s recovery time and it can often be performed on an outpatient basis. Here’s what one of our patients said about Dr. Bennett’s care.
From the first contact I had with Dr. Bennett and the staff, everything was pleasant and efficient. The staff was always caring and helpful, from giving directions to supplying the endless forms needed. Dr. Bennett has a great bedside manner. Calm, reassuring, capable, and very willing to answer all questions openly and honestly. He always spent any time needed to make sure I was getting the best care possible. The surgery appears to be flawless and all of his recommendations for recovery have proven to be spot-on! You could not ask for a better experience. Beth 8/22/12
Sometimes, minimally invasive surgery is not in the patient’s best interests, and Dr. Bennett is fully trained and qualified to perform open surgical procedures when appropriate. Whether a surgical option is chosen by the patient or a non-surgical option is selected, Dr. Bennett and his staff are always ready to answer questions and provide the information patients need to make decision about their medical care.
Patient Review: Rated 10 of 10 — The service was excellent. The staff was very helpful and my problem was resolved! Ella G. 10/29/12
