Treat the whole person not just the hip.

Dr. White strongly believes that hip arthroscopy is a big procedure that should be done in a hospital rather than a surgery center.  He believes that it is important to treat the whole person and not just the hip.  He is very happy with the level of care and the facility at Porter Hospital.
