The goal of this practice is to provide comprehensive orthopedic care. Dr. Birnbaum has a down to earth personality and good bedside manner, which he believes is essential in delivering care. A patient must be comfortable with him and his staff prior to offering any form of treatment. Dr. Birnbaum believes that surgery is not always the first option and that patient education concerning a condition or disease is paramount prior to taking the next step. It is crucial that his patients take an active role in the decision making, particularly when elective surgery is offered.
