Hand and Upper Extremity Orthopaedic Specialist

As a hand and upper extremity physician, I am passionate about my area of specialty and the optimal health care of my patients. I enjoy and take pride in educating my students and resident doctors as I enjoy educating my patients. The more you know the more you can take care of yourself and participate in your health care decisions.

Thus, a partnership developed between a doctor and a patient based on mutual respect combined with a caring and skillful orthopedic doctor will lead to a patient's optimal experience. It is a privilege and an honor to treat you and I pledge to give you the best care possible.
