Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Guyette "Dr. Guyette believes surgery is just one option; many of these diagnoses can be successfully managed without surgery with a coordinated approach including therapy, medications, and patient education. Even though his focus is on the upper extremity pathology, it is important to recognize that these problems commonly affect the whole patient ... their work, recreational activities, and even simple daily tasks ... and their treatment must be undertaken in that context."

I had shattered my wrist and had extensive surgery on it. After 2 years of PT I was lucky enough to find Dr Guyette. He gave me 3 options and let me choose. He did an amazing job on cleaning up the scar tissue and other issues left from the original surgery. I tell people that I have a new wrist.
