Optional Personal Statement: My goal as a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon is to evaluate each patient and family individually and to treat them respectfully and in accordance with the beliefs and customs of each family. I strive to apply sound clinical and basic scientific evidence in the care of each patient and to explain the rationale for treatment and course of therapy in understandable terms. I work as part of a team that is always available to answer questions and to support the family and the patients when we are called.
