"Using our hands and arms is important for almost everything we do each day. We are fortunate to be able to provide all types of surgical and nonsurgical care for patients from the high school athlete to the victim of major trauma to patients with disabling arthritis."


Dr. Orfaly has advanced specialty training in hand and shoulder surgery and cares for problems of the entire upper extremity (hand, arm, elbow and shoulder). He is committed to educating his patients about all the options available. This includes nonsurgical care coordinated with our physical medicine and rehabilitation team and the doctors and therapists already involved in a patient’s care. Surgery includes a variety of minimally invasive (small incision) options. Dr. Orfaly is also interested in shoulder replacement, including bone sparing and reverse shoulder replacements.
