Sam Linford, MD
“Being an orthopaedic surgeon is both extremely challenging and rewarding. I love seeing an athlete recover from a ligament injury, subsequent surgery, and eventually return to the field of play. Equally rewarding is treating someone with debilitating arthritis. By performing a knee or hip replacement, I can help them return to full function—in both their employment and recreational pursuits. In fact, I feel an absolute obligation to providing my best, from expert recommendations to top-quality surgical care. That’s because I truly care about the people in my care, and I’m committed to doing what will be best, most appropriate, and most effective for them.”
