|W. Chris Kostman, M.D.|
“I enjoy science, technology and medicine. I like the diagnostic aspect of medicine -identifying the cause of a particular functional deficit and determining the clinical solution. My interest in orthopedic surgery developed during medical school. The ability to technically perform surgery and have people become more functional and lead more productive lives as a result of my intervention is rewarding. I enjoy improving patient’s lives and helping them enjoy their pursuits. I enjoy both the technical and functional aspects of orthopedic surgery.”
