Matthew Provencher, M.D., CAPT, MC, USNR, an orthopedic knee surgeon and shoulder specialist at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, not only listens to the needs of his patients, but he responds with helpful information. The latest demonstration of his patient dedication is reflected in his new patient education website.
Patients can take an active participation in their healthcare by searching Dr. Provencher’s site for information on conditions such as cartilage injuries, meniscus deficiency, rotator cuff tears, and ligament Injuries, among others.
According to the February 16, 2017 news release, prior to joining The Steadman Clinic, Dr. Provencher served as the Chief of Sports Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, Visiting Professor at Harvard Medical School, and the Head Team Physician and Medical Director for the New England Patriots.
Dr. Provencher commented to OTW, “We want to provide our patients with a comprehensive resource encompassing a wide variety of shoulder, knee and sports injuries with their corresponding treatment options. In addition, we want to highlight some of the important research and educational contributions that we have made to help keep all of our patients ‘in the game.’ We have found that our research and educational activities have greatly enhanced the ability to treat patients at the highest level and get them back quicker and better than before. Ultimately, we want patients to come across the website and leave with a little more knowledge and some reassurance in regards to what treatment might be needed.”
“More than anything else, we want patients to use this as a resource where they can learn about shoulder, knee and sports injuries, while also gaining a bit of an understanding of their own condition. The website also serves to highlight our patient care team and leadership, which we recognize as a very important aspect of the overall patient care experience.”
