Dr. Nigro's Practice Philosophy

My philosophy is to work with patients to understand why they are having pain. My aim is to provide each patient with the knowledge to make an educated decision about how to pursue treatment. Often times that may be directed physical therapy, bracing or even a cortisone injection. When patients have problems that do not improve with non-surgical treatment, we then may consider surgical treatment. My feeling is that it is important to partner with each patient to come to an educated decision when considering surgery. I consider it my privilege to have the opportunity to provide excellent care for my patients.
