Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Niver "Dr. Niver's interest in hand surgery started when he learned about the intricacies of the forearm and hand compartments during his first semester anatomy course in medical school. He says, "I enjoy hand surgery because it combines skills for a wide range of procedures, including fracture repair, nerve repair, tendon transfers, and ligament reconstructions. In addition, it's gratifying to improve my patient's manual dexterity, limb use, and quality of life.""

Dr. Niver is FANTASTIC. I had a unique hand injury and he carefully explained it and operated successfully. He also suggested a wonderful Occupational Therapist. Three months after the surgery I am gaining my strength back in my left hand. Thank you Dr. Niver!
