Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Immerman "As an orthopedic surgeon with specialty training in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery, Dr. Igor Immerman treats all conditions of the upper extremity, from the simple to the complex. He has a specific interest and special training in peripheral nerve repair and reconstruction, and the use of the Ilizarov method for complex upper extremity problems. Dr. Immerman's philosophy of care is that each patient should be treated as a unique person and not by a "cookie-cutter", protocol-only approach. He spends time getting to know each patient, and works together with the patient to choose the right treatment, whether surgical or nonsurgical, that is best for their specific situation."
