Persevering for positive outcomes.
The comprehensive orthopedic practice of Charles Granatir, M.D.
to our practice is the attitude of "perseverance". In most
diagnosis is readily apparent - as is appropriate
treatment. In cases where it is not, we resolve
to find or
create the optimum possible treatment/ solution for every
patient's medical need.
Specific examples of how this tenacious quest
has helped patients, some of whom had almost
given up on their situation, are described in the
You have two concerns:
the medical problem and your worry about it.
We attend to both.
Whether an injury or a disease, there
are always the accompanying fears..."Is this treatable,
is the damage permanent?"
We provide each and every patient with treatment for the physical, and respect for the worry. We explain our diagnosis and treatments with accuracy, understanding, and full consideration. Dr. Granatir, as an athlete*, has suffered injuries and been "on the other side of the scalpel". He has experienced a patient's pain and worry that accompany a medical problem.
* Dr. Granatir participates in running, triathlons, mountain and road biking, rollerblading, skiing, swimming, windsurfing, sailing, tennis, golf and weight training. He feels that being a "jock" makes him a better orthopedic "doc".
Comprehensive Orthopedic Medical Care:
Excellence from routine visits to emergency surgery.

|Arthroscopy of knee,
shoulder & other major joints

Be assured, you will never be subjected to any unnecessary tests or procedures, nor placed at risk.
