Surgeries can range from simple routine procedure to more complex and complicated ones. While I always encourage surgery with the patient awake when possible, some patients with a routine procedure may want to be asleep instead of awake as well. These are performed in a surgery center or a hospital. The vast majority of these are done with a nerve block provided by the anesthesiologist. This helps to minimize or sometimes avoid deep general anesthesia and is safer for the patient.

I have been very fortunate to train with many experts in hand and upper extremity surgery. I also have a very specialized training and interest particularly in traumatic injuries. Here are some of the conditions that I can treat:

  • Simple and Complex Fractures and dislocations (hand, wrist, and elbow)
  • Ligament injuries to the hand, wrist, and elbow
  • Arthritis of the elbow, wrist, and hand (including joint replacements and fusions)
  • Peripheral nerve compression (carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, radial tunnel syndrome, etc.)
  • Nerve injuries (nerve repair, nerve reconstruction, nerve transfer, tendon transfers for nerve injuries)
  • Tendon injuries (tendon repair, tendon reconstruction, tendon transfer)
