Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Raven III "Dr. Raven believes in a multidisciplinary approach and always maximizes conservative treatment before considering surgery. This includes physical and occupational therapy, complementary and alternative medicine, prescription medications and steroid injections when appropriate. If conservative treatment modalities fail, Dr. Raven may recommend surgery using state-of-the-art techniques. All treatment is aimed towards pain control and improving hand and upper extremity function."

Dr. Raven performed surgery on both of my hands for carpal tunnel and trigger fingers. Both surgeries went well and I had great recoveries. Dr Raven’s staff is excellent and helped me with all my pre-op and post-op needs. I had a very positive experience.
