About Me

Philosophy of Care

Dr. Stanton's care is centered around providing accurate information based on science, technology, and experience, to ensure full patient understanding of their condition. This includes both non-operative and surgical interventions. As a sports medicine physician, he incorporates the team concept through all aspects of the care of his patients. Dr. Stanton believe the success of any treatment intervention require an understanding and collaboration between all members of the team, including the patient, physician, family members, physical therapist, and primary care physicians. By creating a scenario where everyone feels that they are on the same page, patients will experience a more successful outcome as well as a more positive overall experience.
