Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wood "I believe in tailoring the treatment to the individual. We each use our hands in different ways. Care should focus on improving day-to-day activities including work, hobbies, and social activities. I also believe surgery should be considered very carefully and not performed casually. There are risks with anything we do, but it is important to keep these as low as possible."
