I really appreciated Dr. Hamilton taking the time with me and to answer questions. This was a second opinion on surgery, and unlike the first surgeon I spoke with, he did not go directly to surgery as an option because he did not think it was needed yet. He explained why and that it probably would need to happen down the road but I should take a more conservative approach at this point. If I did have to have the surgery I would have felt very comfortable with Dr. Hamilton.

Dr. Hamilton was very receptive to the progress I had accomplished using therapy intervention and reassured me that when therapy reached a point that it would no longer work he would gladly handle any surgery procedure that was necessary.
