Why Are We Advanced?



If you’ve been around the office lately, you’ve probably noticed us wearing buttons featuring the phrase “Ask me why we are advanced!”  It’s a great question, because we know you have a choice in who you trust to care for your injuries.  We have been asking ourselves the same question a lot lately, along with “why should our patients choose our practice and allow us to help them?” 

It’s not an easy answer, because a lot goes into not only getting you better, but into making sure the experience you have while you are with us is as smooth and enjoyable for you as possible.

When the people who make up St. Peters Bone and Joint sat down and really thought about it, we had many ideas about what makes us advanced and why so many people come back to our practice, and send their friends and family to us.  In our office, everyone with whom you come in contact treats you as a guest.  Not a number.  Not a diagnosis to fix.  As a person, just as we would treat you in our own home. 

We are skilled specialty physicians, with talents that span not only bone and joint injuries, but include management of concussions, overuse injuries, and chronic pain.  What makes us advanced?  We employ cutting edge diagnostic and treatment strategies to get you better.  And we do this with you as our guide.  Every guest’s treatment is individualized to his or her goals and desires. 

Want to run a marathon but have some knee pain?  We’ll talk with you about why you have that pain, how you can fix it, and how you can avoid having it ever again.  Have a shoulder that keeps you up at night?  We’ll show you what is going on, help control the pain, and educate you on how make it go away forever.  Together, we will come up with a plan and help you execute it.  You are in charge.  We are here to help you meet your goals and live your life.  And we hope that while you are with us, you will actually enjoy being at the doctor’s office.

So when it came down to it, we felt the name “St. Peters Bone and Joint Surgery” didn’t illustrate to our guests what makes our practice special.  It tells you where we are, but it doesn’t describe the incredible things that are going on here.  It doesn’t express why we should be your ally in meeting your goals.  So welcome to the new “Advanced Bone & Joint.”  We are happy to be your partner in health.  When the need arises, come on in and let us show you why we are advanced!
