Hand and Upper Extremities

Board certified by the American Osteopathic Association, I specialize in hand and upper extremity surgery as well as microsurgery. I am especially interested in treating all ailments of the elbow. My articles on this topic appear in medical journals, and I also lecture around the country. Each year, I travel to third-world countries for mission work. In 1997, I was honored to receive the Ohio Occupational Therapy Association’s Pioneer Award, which recognizes contributions to furthering education and training for hand therapists, residents and other physicians.
