Dr. Ritter graduated with degrees in Math and Philosophy, but decided to become a hand surgeon after a traumatic thumb injury during medical research. The hand surgeon restored her thumb's form and function. She graduated from Wake Forest University School of Medicine in North Carolina and did her 5-year Orhtopaedic Residency at LSU Hospital in Shreveport. Dr. Ritter returned to North Carolina for her Hand Fellowship and achieved the Certificate of Added Qualification in Surgery of the Hand. (CAQSH) She has trained with world renown surgeons on the cutting edge of hand surgery. Dr. Ritter's goal is to return her patients to the best possible outcome for their problem or injury. After all, our hands are rarely idle so we need them to function at the highest level possible.

Dr. Ritter's Care Philosophy
My practice philosophy revolves around the patient, not just their hand problem. I believe the more patients understand about their hand, and the more input they have into their treatment, the better the outcome.
