Dr. Petsche works with a team that includes medical assistants, nurses, physician assistants, and others to provide the best comprehensive care. Each team member works closely with physical and occupational therapists to help patients regain pain-free range of motion, strength, and function after injury or surgery.

An athlete himself, Dr. Petsche prides himself as someone who athletes and sports enthusiasts can relate to. From participation in such youth sports as baseball, football, basketball, soccer, gymnastics and golf, Dr. Petsche went on to compete in All-State and All-American springboard diving in high school.
