Brian A. McCarty, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon, Fellowship trained in Sports Medicine

Specialties: Shoulder, Knee, Sports Medicine, Joint Restoration

Each of our patients has unique needs and expectations. We offer a team approach incorporating therapists, trainers and other specialists to maximize improvement. I strongly emphasize physical rehabilitation and recommend surgery only for clear diagnoses when other treatments have failed.
