Your first appointment at Battle Born Bone and Joint Center is focused on understanding your correct diagnosis and individual needs. This includes a thorough medical history, physical exam, and x-rays. Additional testing or advanced imaging techniques such as ultrasound, MRI, or CT scans may be required to confirm the exact diagnosis. Once the correct diagnosis is established, Dr. Granata works with each patient so they understand their diagnosis and available treatment options. The goal is to educate patients so they can make informed decisions regarding the best treatment option for them. This shared decision-making process has been shown to result in greater patient (and physician) satisfaction and improved health outcomes.
