Welcome to the SuperPATH Hip website

The basic tenets of my practice philosophy include the following: Treat people the way Mom would have wanted. Honesty matters. The trust of a patient and their family is a precious gift. You are never good enough at what you do that you can't get better tomorrow. An involved, educated patient always has the best chance of obtaining the best possible result.
