    Clinical Interests

    The hand and upper extremity are unique areas that are made up of bones,
    joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels.
    Preservations and restoration of hand and arm function is critical to
    each individual who has unique demands and aspirations. For each individual,
    I believe it is important to listen to their unique demands and goals
    as it relates to upper extremity problems. In doing so, I can help patients
    achieve their goal of restoration of function and relief of pain.
