Personally Speaking

I decided to become a hand surgeon because I like the fact that hand surgery allows me to do lots of different kinds of procedures including arthroscopic, microsurgery, and treating many different conditions. I see a mixture of athletes, non-athletes, elderly patients, and children. There is a wide variety of patients with upper extremity injuries and conditions.

I believe my greatest strength as a physician is the ability to put myself in the place of the patient and understand their needs and concerns. It makes it a much better partnership when you understand where the patient is coming from and have empathy.

I enjoy talking to people.  Every patient I meet is interesting in different ways, and that is what gets me through the day – getting to know my patients and finding out something interesting about them.
