Summary

  • I am currently Professor and Executive Vice Chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine, Chief of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery and Co-Chief of the Hand Service at St. Louis Children's Hospital. I am board-certified in orthopaedic surgery and hand surgery and have completed a fellowship in hand and wrist surgery at the University of Cincinnati/Hand Surgery Specialists. I provide care for patients of all ages with surgery of the fingers, hand, wrist, forearm and elbow and am particularly committed to the care of children with birth and acquired problems of the upper extremity. This includes birth anomalies, difficulties related to trauma, and acquired conditions of any type including tumors. Minimally invasive and arthroscopic procedures are preferred when appropriate.
