Dr. Michael Kim-Orden
Why partner with OCPT?: Surgery is only one component of treating musculoskeletal pain. Equally as important is an active healthy lifestyle, diet, as well strength and flexibility. I work with OCPT to make sure that my patients are well taken care of once they are outside of the operating room to achieve an optimal result. OCPT providers work one on one with their patients, are easy to communicate with, and deliver outstanding results.
