"One of my favorite things about being a hand and upper extremity surgeon is talking with my patients about their hobbies, sports, careers and any other interests they have. With a better understanding of their passions and desires, it allows us to work together to formulate a treatment plan that will best restore both form and function to help them return to the activities they enjoy. Very few people get to do a job they love and I am very fortunate to be one of them while serving the people of this great state."
