I’ve dedicated my career to treating the wrist, elbow, and hand injuries of patients in Richmond and throughout Virginia with the latest, minimally invasive techniques. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, and fractures of the hand and wrist are all common problems that can be treated with a minimally invasive approach. My goal is to eliminate your pain, speed recovery, and restore function and motion while keeping you and your family informed and comfortable. I’ve been a practicing hand specialist in Richmond, Virginia since 1995 and have had the honor to be recognized 13 times by Richmond Magazine as best Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon. In 2011, I was recognized as one of the top hand surgeons in the United States by US News & World Report. There are only 2 hand surgeons in Virginia recognized by US News. I hope you’ll take some time to learn about my practice, common disease conditions and hand injuries, as well as treatment options available to you.
