About

Bio

I am a board certified orthopaedic hand surgeon with a certificate of added qualifications in hand surgery. I am a member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. I have been devoted primarily to the treatment of the hand, wrist and upper extremity since 2004. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, snow skiing and fitness.

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.

Thanks for your quick reply! Nerve pain is a result of damage done during anesthesia. We have seen many doctors but no relief to debilitating pain.
