There is a saying that the hands are the eyes of the soul. They can provide comfort. They allow us to interact with our world and the people in it. If an injury or a disease has caused dysfunction of the hands, it can be very disabling. I enjoy helping people regain use of their hands whether it is through watchful waiting, therapy, bracing, injections, medications or surgery. I see people of all ages and with a variety of conditions, including but not limited to, carpal tunnel syndrome, masses in the hands, fractures of the hand or wrist, arthritis, nerve problems of the upper extremity, Dupuytrens's contracture and trigger fingers. I see my role not only as a hand surgeon but also as an educator to patients. Being born and raised in Minnesota, I enjoy lake time and family bike rides along the Mississippi with my husband and our two children.
