Why should I go to you rather than a surgeon at a larger hospital?

Unlike orthopedic surgeons embedded within hospitals, Dr. Velyvis can provide more personalized care to all his patients. At his private practice, there are no mid-level providers. When patients make appointments with his office, they see him.

What does private practice orthopedic care look like?

Dr. Velyvis speaks directly with patients to diagnose their orthopedic issues, answers every question, and together he and his patients develop the most appropriate treatment plan. Dr. Velyvis never prescribes a surgery to a patient. He gives each patient the best, up-to-date information on their problem, tells them about all their treatment options, describes the pros and cons, risks and benefits, and lets each individual choose what’s best for them.

His office also offers easy scheduling and a convenient location within the city.
