I am a hand and upper extrem­i­ty sur­geon that believes in cre­at­ing a tai­lored treat­ment plan for each indi­vid­ual. I believe in the impor­tance of edu­cat­ing and inform­ing each patient about their con­di­tion, non-oper­a­tive and oper­a­tive options. I look for­ward to work­ing as a team to help my patients get back to their lives with less pain and bet­ter function.
