I’m Dr. Jonathan Biebl. My specialty is general orthopedics, but a special interest in joint replacement. My patients run the gamut. I have pediatric patients, I have geriatric patients, I have sports-injuries patients, I have patients that just plain wore out their parts and need replacing. Well, surely there’re people that stand out. Some of the younger people that are really debilitated and get back to their full activities, activities they haven’t done in 10 years. But that’s kind of what medicine’s about. It’s certainly the satisfaction of seeing someone return to the quality of life or the level of function they want to be at. And that’s the same goal I share in my life. I want to be at the highest function I can be, the highest quality of life. And that’s what I share with my patients. We basically have a team approach. All the physicians have a patient coordinator who facilitates all the communication and the flow through clinic. And then most all of us have a physician’s assistant, physician extender that allows us to really be more efficient in clinic and be able to see a few more people that would maybe have to wait a little longer. And they also help in surgery, so they facilitate the level of care and the efficiency of care. It’s a collaborative process with the patient. We collaborate with the patient, how they feel about the progress, how they feel about what their end goal is, and we make the decision jointly.
Summit’s arthritis specialists offer a broad range of nonsurgical treatments to manage arthritis pain.
