Care Philosophy

Dr. Meadows’ approach to orthopedic surgery is patient based and he relies on the relationship he has with each patient to determine the best evidence-based treatment to achieve the most predictable result. He understands that there are no two conditions that present the exact same way in each patient and surgery is tailored to each individual condition.
