I enjoy anatomy and applying it to a patients’ problem. Hand surgery allows you to take the anatomy and skills from several different surgical disciplines – orthopedics, plastic, vascular, general surgery – to help a wide range of patients.
I most enjoy helping any patient that is having daily pain or numbness and hearing how a surgery has helped them return to normal daily activities. I have had several patients express how happy they are that their symptoms they have had for years are now completely gone.
I prefer to spend my spare time with my wife and two children, working outside, and swimming.
Medicine allows me to have a job where I can constantly stay engaged and interested in what I am doing. Hand surgery allows me to help people with daily problems or an injury they were not prepared for. I feel privileged to be able to help others and treat all patients like they are family.
