Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pater "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. Later was very emphatic and explained my choices to me. He did not push me into surgery and was willing to see as much as I needed.
