Provider Expertise

Clinical Interest for Patients

Orthopedic hand, wrist, and elbow treatments (including surgery when required).

Care Philosophy

We interact with the world through our hands, and hand pathology can have a dramatic effect on our lives. Because treatments for these injuries are so tailored, I believe that understanding the patient and their specific needs is the first step in delivering the highest quality care. My passion for treating individuals so they can return to their active lifestyle has led me to pursue a career in hand/upper extremity. I approach each patient with the compassion I would give a family member and am dedicated to using the best available scientific evidence and advanced techniques to improve their function.
