“The hand is our primary tool for interacting with the world. Simple hand injuries may affect every facet of life, from work, to leisure, to simply being able to open a jar. I find great satisfaction in helping people regain functionality and resume their daily lives. Every patient has different expectations and goals. One of the challenges of my practice, which I enjoy most, is inviting a collaborative effort with my patients to obtain the best possible outcome.”- Dr. Hein
“My desire to learn more about medicine and the human body was sparked by an experience during a dissection in a college biology lab,” said Dr. Hein. “We were separating pacemaker cells from cardiac muscle and I remember being awestruck because the pacemaker cells kept beating even though they were no longer connected to the heart. This was elegant and fascinating to me, and set me on a path that led to multiple volunteer opportunities which solidified my course for a career in medicine.”
Dr. Hein treats a wide range of surgical orthopedic issues including arthritis, joint replacement, ligamentous injuries, minimally invasive surgery, carpal tunnel, nerve compression, trigger fingers, hand masses, wrist pain, fractures and dislocations , Dupuytren’s contracture, nerve injury, hand surgery and repetitive stress injuries.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Hein enjoys playing and watching football, basketball, construction, bike riding, hiking, and spending time with his wife and sons.
