Statement from Dr. Stewart:
"My treatment philosophy is conservative, favoring non-surgical treatment when medically appropriate in the absence of quality evidence for superior results with surgery.
"I spend extra time discussing conditions with parents and patients in an understandable and accurate way, and work to carefully explain pros and cons of medically appropriate options.
"Parent and patient engagement in the treatment process are essential to get the best results. I try to listen closely to patients and parents and engage in collaborative decision-making. Parents know their children in a way that medical providers cannot, and have important observations. Parental input and preferences play an essential role in formulating the optimal treatment plan for your child.
"I read medical journals and texts daily and to stay current with research and new developments."
