Biography

Philosophy of care
My goal is for the recovery of lost function from an injury through skillful application of evidence-based care.

Why Dr. Benedetti went into medicine
I intended to design orthopaedic implants, but preferred fixing fractures.

Favorite advice to give to patients
Surgery is the easy part. Results usually depend more on how hard a patient works after surgery than what I do during surgery.
