Dr. Swartz's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Swartz "Dr. Swartz received both his Bachelor of Science in Biology and Doctor of Medicine degrees from the University of Illinois. He completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, where he also met and worked with MOI's Dr. Michele Glasgow. He went on to complete a fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery at Harvard University. He is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery with a Certificate of Added Qualification in hand surgery. "Hand and upper-extremity surgery initially attracted me because of the interesting and complex anatomy involved. The structure of the bones and muscles in the hand and fingers require a separate set of surgical skills that are especially challenging.""
