Dr. Bruce is a good pediatric orthopedic surgeon in that he is knowledgeable and technically good in surgery. However, he is "surgery happy" meaning that he will often make a quick, rash decision to operate (even when other doctors think it is best not to operate or to wait and attempt other options). Although Dr. Bruce is on the cutting edge of surgery - he seems to want to "try out" the latest operation. When your child has a serious condition, like an orthopedic handicapping condition, you need a doctor who will take time, do a thorough investigation, and use the most effective (not the newest) procedure.
