Orthopedic Surgeon - Hand

HealthPartners Specialty Center St. Paul / TRIA Orthopedic Center Woodbury

I treat hand and wrist problems from common (carpal tunnel syndrome) to complex (wrist fractures and dislocations), but have a special interest in hand and wrist trauma including distal radius fractures, intercarpal injuries and distal radial-ulnar joint problems. I like the intricate anatomy of the hand and enjoy treating a variety of conditions. I work with our wonderful team of nurses, physician assistants, surgeons and hand therapists to improve hand care for all patients. Hand surgery research is an important part of my practice; I have published research in scientific journals, presented at conferences, and also serve as director Healthpartners Hand Surgery Fellowship that provides an additional year of specialized hand surgery training for two surgeons every year.
