Practice Overview

Adam J. Bakker, MD, is a board certified and Mayo Clinic hand surgery fellowship-trained surgeon who specializes in surgical and nonsurgical treatment of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. He focuses on conditions of the hand and upper extremities including minimally invasive treatment options for Dupuytren’s contractures and carpal tunnel syndrome, hand and upper extremity fracture care, arthroscopy, tendon and ligament injuries, upper extremity joint replacements, and microsurgery. He also has an active interest in international orthopedic care to underserved regions.
