I am an upper extrem­i­ty and recon­struc­tive microvas­cu­lar sur­geon whose prac­tice is ground­ed on col­lab­o­rat­ing with my patients, their fam­i­ly and allied health pro­fes­sion­als in tai­lor­ing an evi­dence-based treat­ment plan that will lead to the best pos­si­ble out­comes for my patients. My years of inter­na­tion­al and aca­d­e­m­ic expe­ri­ence have pro­vid­ed me with the skills and valu­able insights that allow me to expert­ly eval­u­ate and edu­cate the patients about their upper extrem­i­ty and nerve con­di­tions. I believe in empow­er­ing my patients by pro­vid­ing them with the most recent research data about their orthopaedic prob­lem and then part­ner­ing with them to arrive at a treat­ment plan that will pro­vide the high­est chance of suc­cess and recov­ery. As an upper extrem­i­ty sur­geon, my skill set ranges from the lat­est min­i­mal­ly inva­sive tech­niques for carpal tun­nel release, to com­plex joint replace­ments of the upper extrem­i­ty, to microvas­cu­lar recon­struc­tion for brachial plexus and nerve injuries. I am ded­i­cat­ed to help­ing patients and their fam­i­lies over­come their upper extrem­i­ty prob­lems so they can live their lives to the fullest.

"Dr Angeles always takes the time to listen to my concerns and/or questions and addresses them."

"Didn't seem to care. He acted like there was no concern and he didn't want to be bothered with me. Like I was making it all up. He referred me to another doctor and she found three things wrong and is taking care of the problems. I will never go back to Dr Angeles again."
