The human hand is intricate and complex.
Trust any problems, big or small, to the experts in hand care. Thanks to surgical advancements, our hand surgeons have more tools than ever to restore hand function and appearance, even in severe injuries.
At Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic, our surgeons have extensive training and experience in hand surgery. We treat a wide spectrum of hand and wrist-related conditions caused by traumatic injuries, degenerative conditions, or workplace exposure.
Dr. Schmidt completed fellowship training in orthopedic hand surgery which affords him additional expertise and experience treating other conditions such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis of the wrist and hand, ligament injuries in the wrist, and wrist fractures.
