Personal Info

I am a dedicated wife and mother of two boys. I have traveled abroad to offer hand surgical care to people in third-world countries.

Philosophy Of Care

Our hands are an integral part of our day-to-day lives. Our hands not only allow us to accomplish our daily activities, but they are how we communicate with the world and with one another. Losing the function of one's hands can be devastating, and I strive to give my patients pain-free, full functionality of their hands.

I believe in developing an open and honest relationship with my patients. I try to involve patients in the understanding of their condition and the decision-making of their treatment. My goal is to educate the patient on what is going on, offer them various treatments and allow them to make informed decisions about their care.
