surgery, and is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Dr. Liu earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from Paul L. Foster School

Cleveland (Ohio) Clinic. He is a member of several professional organizations,

Dr. Liu's primary focus is to help patients improve their ability to
perform desired activities in all age groups. "I like to carefully
listen to my patients and understand their goals," said Dr. Liu,
"and form a personalized treatment plan. Most orthopaedic conditions
can be improved with non-surgical treatments, so we reserve surgery for
those who have exhausted all other options." Dr. Liu is well-trained
in a variety of surgical techniques, ranging from minimally invasive to
multi-planar external fixation. "My goal is to select the best treatment
approach for each patient," added Dr. Liu, "and to do so in
an individualized fashion. No two patients are alike."
