“Orthopaedics is a fascinating field that cares for patients of all ages. From sporting injuries to arthritis, we return patients to the activities that make life enjoyable. It is being a part of this dynamic that lured me into the practice of orthopaedics.”

“My goal is to provide patients with the best information to make informed decisions. We work together in a partnership to achieve the best outcomes tailored to each patient. Orthopaedic care is not one-size-fits-all. By listening to patients, I can individualize treatment plans based on their current function and future goals.”

“I provide my patients with informative, compassionate and customized care focused on returning them to the activities they love. Patients are the center of my practice. My partnership with them drives me to excellence as we work toward the successful treatment of their condition.”
  – David J. Downs
