Tahsin M. Ergin, MD, FACS
It’s not a race. Dr. Tahsin M. Ergin knows that the key to success with any patient is to spend time with him or her explaining the problem and then providing options and recommendations for a solution. He estimates that he and the other doctors at Essex Orthopaedics spend sometimes four times as much as other doctors do for patient appointments. “We’ve never been focused on volume. We’re focused on quality. We spend as much time with each patient as each patient needs to completely understand the problem and potential solutions. We often have patients say ‘Nobody ever explained that to me before.’”
Dr. Ergin’s undergraduate degree is in biomedical engineering, so the intricacy of human motion and the function of the musculoskeletal system appealed to him. He is also interested in many sports and has been since childhood, thus orthopaedic surgery and, in particular, sports medicine, were a natural fit. The most compelling facet of both for Dr. Ergin is the opportunity to help people return to the level of function they had before their problem arose or their injury occurred.
“That effort to get patients back to what they most enjoy doing is the thing that drives me now. And when I’m successful in that effort, it’s my greatest reward.”
