Dr. Horst's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Horst "Originally from Pennsylvania, Boston became my second home when I attended Tufts University. After earning my MD at Tufts School of Medicine, I spent 6 years at Medical University of South Carolina training in orthopaedic surgery. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, swimming, running, and photography."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Horst "My particular surgical interests include hand, wrist and elbow arthritis and trauma. I have experience with both open and arthroscopic treatment methods.  I also have an interest in peripheral nerve compression syndromes such as carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome and have a large amount of experience with peripheral nerve repairs and grafting. When indicated, I always try to implement non-operative treatment methods before resorting to surgery."
