Philosophy of Care
Dr. Sich provides surgical and non-surgical care. His philosophy is to focus on why your problem exists and to provide the best treatment options for the cause. It could be as simple as shoes being the wrong length, width, or shape! He takes into consideration multiple variables including your history, age, medication, other health conditions, social and employment factors. He uses information from x-rays, CT, MRI, and nuclear studies, as well. Sometimes, the problem is coming from above the foot. In these cases, Dr. Sich likes to refer his patient's to the appropriate specialist to provide the most focused and cost-effective care.
