Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Erickson "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."

Dr. Erikson has performed three hand surgeries for me - two trigger fingers and a carpal tunnel release. He also treated a broken wrist for me. I found him to be caring, an expert, very professional and proficient.
