My approach to treating patients

For nearly 18 years I was priviledged to practice in a large hand surgery office in St. Paul, Minnesota. I have returned to my hometown of Dyersburg, Tennessee and opened Hand Surgery Clinic, PLLC which is dedicated solely to hand and upper extremity problems in all age groups. Here in Dyersburg we are a solo practitioner office set up to do clinical evaluations, injections, instant x-ray imaging, and minor procedures and surgery under local anesthesia. Special interest of mine include congenital hand problems, circulatory disorders of the hand, arthritic problems of the hand, traumatic hand and forearm injuries (nerves, tendons, muscles,arteries), and infections.
