Dr. Charles Preston provides state of the art treatment for general orthopedic as well as athletic injuries. His goal is to provide each patient with a complete evaluation of their orthopedic problem, to discuss all treatment options, and match treatment options with patient needs and expectations. He emphasizes conservative treatment before recommending surgery and uses minimally evasive techniques when surgery is required.
He has great respect for the patient’s time and is pleased to be able to offer testing, diagnosis, and surgery as needed, in one location. A goal-oriented physician, Dr. Preston works to speed healing time to return patients to work and athletes back to the field as soon as possible.
