Care Philosophy

As a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, with advanced certification in surgery of the hand, I focus on the evaluation and treatment of hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder problems.

Dr. Sowa operated on my left ring finger, for what known as trigger finger. I feel he was very professional and the use of my finger is back to normal.
