“Hand surgery is one of the most rewarding fields in medicine. My years of seeing patients have taught me that everyone has a unique story to tell regarding how their particular condition affects their life. I enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level, and I strive to identify the best treatment plan, surgical or nonsurgical, to achieve their desired goals. Being able to restore normal use of the hands and thereby improve the quality of life in these patients is a privilege.”
