Approach to Sports medicine
Dr. Golan uses advanced arthroscopic and minimally invasive open-surgical techniques for quicker healing and less pain.
Dr. Golan's approach is based on a philosophy that each procedure should be customized to the individual goals and needs of his patients. He employs minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques so that post-operative pain, downtime, and immobility are significantly reduced. Such techniques emphasize not only full-recovery but minimizing down-time. Each patient's treatment is coordinated with a care-team including trainers and therapist to help expedite their return to pain-free activity.
