Gotta Hand It To You

  • Chip, Implanted in Brain, Helps Paralyzed Man Regain Control of Hand

    Five years ago, a college freshman named Ian Burkhart dived into a wave at a beach off the Outer Banks in North Carolina and, in a freakish accident, broke his neck on the sandy floor, permanently losing the feeling in his hands and legs. On Wednesday, doctors reported that Mr. Burkhart, 24, had regained control […]

  • Congratulations Spencer and Stephanie!



    Recently, our receptionist/surgery scheduler, Spencer, tied the knot, and I was honored to have been there to witness the event, and share in their celebration. The ceremony was beautiful, and I tried really hard to understand all that was being said in Spanish. I think I got the gist of it! We are all so […]

  • Go-Kart Racer




    Everyone in the office seemed to be getting a little antsy, so we decided it was time. Time to hit the track. Time to let off some steam and burn some adrenaline. Now, I have never been a very aggressive driver, though I am not averse to speed. But I found myself to be not […]

  • Go Team!



    Took the staff to the Coliseum last Friday night to watch the Giants and A’s. We were pretty evenly split between SF and Oakland. The Giants fans were a little more animated, as you can see. But in the end, the A’s took it 5-4. It was great to see everyone outside the office, and […]

  • Ambidexterity



    Interpreted from its literal translation, “ambidextrous” means having two right hands. It is a word that should be used to describe someone who uses both hands equally well. But more commonly, it is used to describe someone who does some things with one hand, and some with the other. For example, I could be considered […]

Jess has been invaluable in our office, and has contributed in so many ways to making our practice the well-oiled machine that it is. We will miss you, Jess, and wish you […]

  • The Manus Club



    I recently returned from my annual hand club meeting. The Manus Club was started in 2006 and consists of 30 hand surgeons from around the country. The concept behind this club and other hand clubs is to create a cohort of surgeons who completed their training within a few years of each other, who could […]

  • Is your smartphone a pain? How to prevent it from causing your hands to suffer.



    “I’m not a fan of change, especially when it comes to technology. There is only so much that my brain can handle. I still draw with a pencil on paper, not with a stylus on a tablet. I resisted getting a cell phone for as long as possible – even though I was a surgical […]

  • For Adults, Coloring Invites Creativity And Brings Comfort

    In 1982, anthropologist Adrienne Zihlman, now professor emerita at the University of California, Santa Cruz, published The Human Evolution Coloring Book. Students of biological anthropology were invited to learn about DNA, genes, monkeys and apes – and the fossils, tools and evolutionary relationships of our human ancestors – by coloring in pages rife with factual […]

  • Staff



    I love my staff. Ever since I first started in private practice 11 years ago, gathering and maintaining a “team”, rather than just individual staff members, was of critical importance to me. Our current team is warm, empathetic, extremely conscientious, and working toward a common goal – exceptional patient care. Everyone tackles new challenges with […]
