Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wroten "My philosophy is to treat patients as though they are members of my family. My practice consists of nonoperative and surgical management of adult and pediatric hand, wrist, and elbow disorders. I believe in employing nonoperative treament consisting of patient education,therapy, medications, splints, or injections before considering surgery. When surgery is indicated I educate my patients about the procedures available and together we decide what surgery will provide them with the best results."
