Dr. English's bio

This content was provided by Dr. English "My name is Dr. Christopher English. I am a board certified orthopedic surgeon with subspecialized training in hand and upper extremity surgery. I joined Mountain Orthopedics in 2017 and have been practicing in Davis and Weber County since 2014. I treat the majority of hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder conditions by non-surgical means such as casts, braces, therapy, or cortisone injection. However, with some conditions, surgery is needed. With specialized training in hand and upper extremity surgery, I have the most up to date training in arthroscopic wrist and elbow surgery, endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery, and other minimally invasive and microsurgical techniques.
