About

Bio

I am an Orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in problems of the upper extremity. I did a 5 year Orthopaedic Surgery residency then a fellowship in Hand Surgery in Derby, England. I especially like treating broken wrists. I am in a 16 doctor group that covers almost all aspects of Orthopaedics.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Consider a Fusion: Have all the surgeries been done by the same surgeon? If so it is time to try another doctor. Make sure that your surgeon is a member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. It may be time to consider a fusion of the base of the thumb for stability.

Maybe: Many times yes but at other times no. All frctures are different therefore the treatment also varies a lot.

Yes: Rarely after a carpal tunnel release I have had patients develop triggering of their thumb. Some have occured after only a few weeks , others over a few months.
