About

Bio

I graduated from Albion College in 1974 with a BA having majored in Biology. I attended Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit and graduated with my MD in 1978. I completed a 5 year residency in Orthopedic Surgery through Wayne State in 1983. I went into private practice in Mt.Clemens, Mi and the majority of my career has been spent in private practice. I enjoy helping people help themselves and finding a non-operative method whenever possible. Recently I have found myself "burned out" by the politics and economics of medical practice these days and quit active practice. I would still like the opportunity to interact with patients and try to help and educate.

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.

A 32-year-old member asked:

Septic joints: A septic joint is almost always very swollen, very painful , red and hot. The exception would be a patient who is immuno-compromised as they could have an infection without such severe symptoms
A 24-year-old male asked:

Hand fracture: Yes as long as the third and fourth metacarpals are protected an ulnar gutter splint would be fine and may be more comfortable
A 24-year-old female asked:
Dr. Carol Hulett
Orthopedic Surgery 43 years experience
Heel pain: Diagnosis depends somewhat on location of pain. If posterior(back) of heel it could be bursitis. If pain more on bottom or near arch then fasciitis is consideration. You are young enough that I wouldn't think diabetic nerve pain would be present. If it persists you should see your physician.
