Steven Mather, MD

Philosophy of Care

My approach is simple: I place myself in the position of the patient and we work together so I can fully understand their goals and concerns and provide sound advice for an attainable outcome. I take pride in my work in the office as well as the operating room, working to deliver the outcomes that allow patients to restore functionality in their daily lives. Leadership, education and the patient experience are important in all aspects of my practice. I leverage my expertise and extensive knowledge in order to improve upon the technology we implement in the operating room. Remaining at the forefront of leading edge technology and patient care are essential so that our patients are offered the best options available.
