Director's Description

We strive for individual patient education, so that when you leave the office you understand your anatomy, the problems that it could cause and how we propose to fix these problems or even prevent them in the future. Duke has the tremendous resources of it's nationally ranked medical center and top notch faculty, but it is also a university that leads the nation in innovation and clinical research.
