Welcome

This site is designed to give my patients accurate, detailed, scientific information about hand problems, so they are empowered to better manage their own healthcare. I have written all the information on this site in clear, simple English, with great illustrations so that it is easy to understand. I look forward to serving you.

I am a nationally-recognized expert in managing post-operative pain with minimal opioids (often but incorrectly called "narcotics"). I have delivered scientific papers on this topic at two national meetings in 2014. If you are looking for the report on the national symposium I organized on Managing Surgical Pain at the annual meeting of the American Academy for Orthopedic Surgeons, click on the link.

Patients: If you are not yet my patient, consider making an appointment. I would be happy to see you. If you do not want to become my patient, you are still welcome to read any part of my site, but please read this.

Doctors: Links to my site are encouraged. You may copy any of my material for patient education. However, if instead of copying, you link to the material you like, when I update the page, your patients will automatically see the updated material without your updating your site. It will save you a lot of busywork! I update the site on an almost daily basis. I will try my best not to ever change the URL's of the patient educational material, so your links will not be broken. I have not changed them since 2000.
