The Washington University Peterson Hand Center was featured on the cover of Ladue News today (September 21, 2012).
With a number of talented hand and wrist specialists coalescing at Washington University Orthopedics, forming the Peterson Hand Center was an obvious next step. “We really do have a group that offers one-stop shopping,” says co-chief of service Dr. Martin Boyer. “There’s really nothing in the hand, wrist and upper extremities that we don’t do: everything from carpal tunnel release to transplantation of bone and microsurgery to restore circulation, and also transplantation of toes to restore hand function. The patient can be fairly certain that whatever their hand or wrist problem, we have the expertise.”
