I chose to specialize in hand surgery because it offers me the privilege of working with patients of all ages from kids to adults and beyond. I get to treat a wide variety of problems like broken bones, numb fingers, new injuries, chronic problems, arthritis, and more. I enjoy working with patients to restore and improve their hand function and see how that impacts their lives. For example, it’s very satisfying to treat a patient with carpal tunnel syndrome, and have them come in for follow-up, reporting that they are sleeping better at night and can feel their fingers better.
I strive to provide the best experience for all my patients throughout their care. I do my best to ensure that every patient feels heard, respected, and understood. I want to work cooperatively with my patients to create a personalized treatment plan that is the best for my patient, their lifestyle, resources, and goals.
In my spare time, my husband and I enjoy cooking, travel, board games, and jigsaw puzzles.
