Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cendales I am a hand transplant surgeon with formal training in hand and microsurgery and transplant surgery. I enjoy working with adults and children who need hand surgery and/or upper extremity reconstruction. I treat conditions that involve the hand including occupational related injuries and trauma. That can include carpel tunnel tendon and nerve injuries and hand transplants. I'm fortunate to work with a team that provides outstanding patient care.
