Care Philosophy

My goal is to improve a patient's quality of life using proven and reliable treatments tailored to individual needs. In most cases, I recommend the least-invasive method possible, and surgery is only recommended after considering the non-surgical alternatives. My treatment approach balances traditional, conservative medical care with state-of-the-art surgical procedures for a variety of hand and upper extremity conditions.

Patient Comments (3)
in Fuquay Varina, NC |
Sensitive to my hand problem and very gentle and attentive. Not at all hurried acting like so many doctors who seem to be thinking about the next patient. A refreshingly 'present' attitude. Good surgeon too and I healed really well.
in Holly Springs, NC |
Dr. Erickson performed surgery on my wrist. He did a great job fixing the torn cartilage I had. Always willing to spend a little extra time with me and very much committed to fixing me. I still had issues after surgery and he was not able to help me further. I sought a second opinion and found a doctor that was able to diagnose and fix my ongoing issues. No complaints on the surgery he did on me, just disappointed he wasn't able to diagnose the underlying issue.
in Durham, NC |
Dr. John Erickson at the Raleigh Hand Center was heartily recommended to me by a friend. The friend had surgery with better-than-expected results. I was told the trip to Raleigh from Chapel Hill was well worth it. I had a cyst on my middle finger which needed to be removed. I made an appointment and was seen quickly and surgery required only a local anesthetic. Within days the finger was back to normal with little evidence of surgery. I could not have been happier!
