Practice Overview

Nicholas Meyer, M.D. is a board certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in upper extremity injuries and conditions. Dr. Meyer also specializes in Dupuytren's Disease, Wrist Fractures and Weight Loss.

"My goal is simple: To help the patient regain their optimal quality of life by treating their condition with the simplest method possible.  Sometimes this requires a simple splint, or therapy, but sometimes it requires surgery.  My job is to provide a diagnosis and treatment options to the patient; their job is to decide which treatment option would best fit their particular situation. 

In that manner, we create a team approach to treating their condition: I cannot expect the patient to have a complete understanding of the condition and treatment options and the patient cannot expect me to have a complete understanding of their particular situation and desires.  We work together to achieve a better understanding and an optimal treatment plan."
