Orthopedic surgeon Eric Cornish, M.D., is board certified and specializes in total joint replacements, shoulder and knee arthroscopy, fracture care and general orthopedics.
Philosophy of Care
“Each patient brings unique health concerns and goals to my office,” said Dr. Cornish. “It is my goal to evaluate each person’s concerns, not just their symptoms, and individualize a treatment plan to help them reach their health goal.”
Dr. Cornish provides comprehensive care looking at all treatment options including medication management, therapy and injections prior to considering surgery. When he believes surgery is the best treatment plan, Dr. Cornish educates patients on the surgical process and recovery.
