      I am a former eye surgeon who developed rheumatoid arthritis with subsequent hand and finger problems. Dr. Cook has been outstanding in helping me with these problems. I have also had trigger finger surgeries on 2 different fingers by Dr. Cook. The surgeries went very well and I have recovered fully so that I can play guitar comfortably again.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Cook Jr. says...

      My Approach to Treating Patients

      As a Board Certified Hand Surgeon and a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon with more than 25 years of specialization, I take a personal and individual approach to caring for my patients.

      To provide the highest quality care, my staff and I strive to listen to the needs of each individual patient, to establish a relationship with each patient, to educate each patient, and to involve each patient in their treatment.

      I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of Hand and Upper Extremity conditions. I also evaluate general Orthopaedic lower extremity conditions.

      During an initial consultation, patients can expect to establish a relationship with me and my staff, to undergo a detailed evaluation, to learn and participate in state-of-the-art treatment for their condition, and ultimately to know that they made the right decision in choosing me.

      The highest compliment I receive is when patients recommend me to one of their family members or friends. My patient's trust is of the utmost importance to me.
