Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wilson "Your entire visit will be spent with me as the physician instead of other healthcare personnel. I believe personalized care should combine with professional expertise for your best healthcare experience. For the past twenty-five years I have been privileged to help thousands of individuals in Oregon restore health to their hands.

Bring me your hand problems – Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, injuries to the wrist, hand and fingers, fingers that pop or lock, and many other hand disorders. As a former professor at Oregon Health and Sciences University, I enjoy treating the challenging cases when other treatments and procedures have failed. For your best results, I recommend that you see a certified hand surgeon who only specializes in hands."
