Dr. Nguyen is Board Certified through the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
He is one of the few hand surgeons in the city covering level 2 hand trauma call treatment including but not limited to replantations, fractures, tendon, and nerve injuries. From the elective hand surgical treatment side, he is one of the most progressive and innovative hand surgeons in the area, constantly updating his repertoire of treatment options, ranging from traditional approaches to cutting edge treatments such as all upper extremity joint arthroplasties, reconstruction, and endoscopic carpal tunnel releases.
Dr. Nguyen views the hand as an intricate tool , not only because of its delicate complex structure intimately packaged, but also because of the livelihood and individuality it represents. For this reason, he feels tireless communication is crucial between patient and physician. Only by working as a team for the common goal to understand and develop realistic expectations can we in turn, optimize the highest outcome possible.
