Pull quote

“While surgery is sometimes the best option to treat issues affecting the hand and upper extremity, I always make sure that the patient and I have explored all of the non-operative strategies first. My goal is to also maximize overall well-being for the patient by encouraging healthy lifestyle choices from exercise to good eating habits.” - Dr. Staiger
