Philosophy Of Care

As a hand and upper extremity surgeon, my goal is to provide every patient with compassionate, high quality care. I believe listening to my patients symptoms is key to identifying the correct diagnosis and to creating an evidence-based treatment plan that optimizes health and functionality. A focused, well directed course of therapy can successfully treat many hand, wrist, and elbow ailments. If surgery is necessary, I am trained in both cutting edge open and minimally invasive techniques. I have experience caring for the most complex injuries, including replantation and reconstruction of amputated hands and fingers. Whether your hope is to return to professional sports or perform daily activities without pain, I am committed to working with you to achieve your goals.
