Conservative approach. I favor the least invasive treatment that will relieve or resolve each patient’s problem, and make extensive use of physical therapy, anti-inflammatory mediations, bracing, activity modification, ultrasound-guided injection therapies, and even referral to alternative providers when appropriate (acupuncture, chiropractic, etc.).
Surgical expertise. I truly enjoy operative orthopedics, and keep my manual and mental skills constantly honed and updated. I limit my surgical procedures to those that I can do as well or better than any other surgeon – if I do not honestly believe this to be the case I will refer a patient elsewhere. When surgery becomes necessary I am prepared to offer the latest and most expertly performed procedures.
Our office is modern and handicapped accessible. Our experienced, professional and friendly staff is committed to making your experience here as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Dr. Weise sees all patients personally at every visit. He takes time to explain conditions, diagnosis, and treatment options in understandable, everyday language. He encourages patients to take an active role in their health-care decisions, and strives to respect their wishes regarding treatment.

Nanoknee and its Surgery Center Partners want to let our patients know what steps we are taking to help minimize exposure to COVID-19
Is it safe to undergo outpatient surgery during this outbreak?
Yes, in fact the surgery center is one of the safest places to be. All of the centers practice extreme hygiene, the staff use protective equipment (masks, gloves, gowns, etc), and we limit waiting room occupancy to allow for extreme social distancing.
Furthermore, we are actively screening all patients and family members prior to surgery. We are also reducing any unnecessary contact by limiting the waiting room to only a few family members at a time. The surgery centers employs the most up to date infection control practices, and the operating rooms are sterile environments.
Avoiding crowds and the hospital are important measures everyone should take. After surgery all patients get to recover in the comfort of their own home. We can arrange for a nurse to visit you at home to help with any additional care. We can coordinate the majority of your follow-up care remotely.
Should I reschedule my procedure?
We currently do not recommend rescheduling or postponing your procedure. Outpatient surgery is extremely safe, and the current COVID-19 outbreak has not changed our ability to provide the highest level of care. However, any patients that have developed recent respiratory symptoms or fevers will be asked to reschedule their procedures. Delaying your procedure now could potentially mean a significant delay in the future.
All procedures have time-limited authorizations. You could be required to undergo a new consultation with your surgeon, which would effectively move patients to the back of the line. We expect a glut of consults and surgeries following the end of the COVID-19 outbreak, and thus surgery dates could be significantly delayed. With most people encouraged to stay at home this is the optimal time for an outpatient surgery.
