“Hand surgery can be both deceptively simple and deceptively complicated. My duty is to provide a comprehensive evaluation and help the patient understand their problem. Together we can work as a team to formulate and execute a treatment plan. I strongly feel that patient education and involvement in treatment decisions is the key to quality medical care. I am committed to evaluating new treatment opportunities tempered by almost 30 years of practical experience navigating the newest clinical advances and failures. I am pleased to offer minimally invasive procedures such as endoscopic carpal tunnel releases and Xiaflex injections for Dupuytrens Contracture. I utilize techniques that speed recovery and hand use after fracture care, and I am presently evaluating new technology for joint replacements in Hand Surgery.
A lot has changed since I completed training and started practice, but patient focused care has always been my guiding principle”
