Island Orthopaedic Medicine is dedicated to providing the most technically advanced surgical techniques and non-surgical wisdom to restore health, happiness, and the pursuit of sport.
Our mission is to improve the patient's quality of life utilizing the safest, most reliable, and least intrusive methods possible. Despite dedicating years of study and training to the field of Orthopaedics, Drs. Meyer, Goodman & White devote considerable time away from the practice to study the most advanced methods or surgical reconstruction possible with special emphasis on minimally invasive techniques. By applying minimally invasive techniques of reconstruction to such areas as the shoulder, knee, and spine, the patient often has a quicker, more satisfying recovery.
We must emphasize that not everyone needs or wants surgery. In many cases, our role is to accurately make the diagnosis and provide the patient with treatment options based on the latest scientifically validated research. Keeping up with this vast amount of research is difficult; however, it is crucial. Many surgical procedures, which in the past were thought to be needed or useful, have been shown to be unnecessary or in some cases even detrimental. A thorough knowledge of the condition can frequently prevent unnecessary surgery.
