Dr. Garcia says, "I chose orthopedics because it allows me to help injured patients return to and maintain their activities and quality of life. It is especially satisfying when my patients tell me they can continue the activities they love as a result of my treatment." He adds, "I consider all aspects of a patient's situation, including physical findings, lifestyle, level and type of activity, and his or her expectations when determining a treatment plan. My goal is to help patients with the least invasive approaches possible."
