Dr. Pater's Care Philosophy

The hand and upper extremity are unique areas that are made up of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. Preservation and restoration of hand and arm function is critical to each individual who has unique demands and aspirations. For each individual, I believe it is important to listen to their unique demands and goals as it relates to upper extremity problems. In doing so, I can help patients achieve their goal of restoration of function and relief of pain.

    Dr. Pater was very compassionate and understanding. He addressed and answered all questions that I had regarding my upcoming surgery. The day of surgery he addressed a couple of other concerns I had to my satisfaction.

    I have firsthand knowledge of Dr Pater's surgical skills and his meticulous attention to detail. His office demeaner is no different. He is very comprehensive in his consultation and was very attentive to my concerns and questions. His calm demeanor puts his patients at ease as well as his surgery center teammates. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Pater to anyone in need of upper extremity diagnostics and or surgical intervention.

    I suffered an injury resulting in 3 fractures and 5 torn ligaments in my right wrist, the type of injury that can lead to permanent disability. I had seen Dr Pater's work in the past, and saw him in clinic. His office was able to get schedule me quickly. After surgery I am happy and grateful as to how well my hand and wrist are doing, no problems at all. He is an excellent surgeon, both in he communication and surgical skill.

    Dr.Pater did reconstructive surgery on my left wrist following a car accident. He was very thorough in his examination and subsequent recommendation of surgery. He took the time to explain the pros and cons and what to expect for my recovery and rehabilitation. His bed side manner was great for all of my follow up appointments. I would highly recommend him for any orthopedic issues.

    My 2nd rotator cuff surgery by Dr Pater. My first and my right shoulder has healed perfectly and has let me live a normal or better than life of a 60 year old When I injured my left shoulder and knew I would have to endure another shoulder procedure, I knew it would be Dr Pater I would choose to handle the surgery. I'm in my 3rd week after surgery and things are going well. The staff and rehab people are very professional and helpful. I feel very confident in both Dr Pater and his staff.

    Dr. Pater saw our daughter and scheduled surgery very quickly after she badly broke her arm recently. We really appreciated his taking the time to explain the surgery, what to expect after and to have a clear plan throughout her healing process. Dr. Pater is kind and friendly and we are very happy that our daughter was able to be his patient-she is doing great!
