I strive to give excellent care at all times. My team and I specialize in treating hand and arm disorders. Our goal is to treat your problem with care and compassion and provide up to date surgical options and recommendations.
My job is to listen to you, diagnose your problem, and then fix that problem to the best of my ability. Not all patients need surgery but all patients NEED a knowledgeable and experienced hand specialist to help them get better whether it is with therapy, injections, splints, or surgery.

I care deeply for my patients and their families and I will make your satisfaction my #1 priority.
