Dr. Woodward's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Woodward "I am a fellowship-trained hand surgeon, providing care for both elective hand problems and hand trauma. During my plastic surgery residency training, I developed skills in soft tissue handling and wound management. In my orthopedic hand fellowship, I learned a variety of surgical techniques from mentors who trained with the pioneers of hand surgery. My combined training in plastic and orthopedic surgery complement each other in my approach to complicated surgical issues. I was raised in Stanwood, a small town north of Seattle. Following my education and training, I spent five years in practice in Eugene, Oregon before returning home to the Puget Sound area. In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing, snowboarding, golf and spending time with my twin son and daughter. My wife, a nurse educator, and I also appreciate fine coffee, traveling and exploring the world of wine."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Woodward "My philosophy is one of informed choice. Every procedure comes with risks and benefits, and my goal is to help each patient understand what their options are in order to make the best choice for their situation. This is especially important in hand surgery because not every condition has a single, clear treatment and multiple options may be presented. I feel that my patients appreciate that I try to take the time necessary for everyone to understand their condition, its treatment options, and the outcome they might expect before they make their decision, as well as guide them through their recovery."
