Veronica A. Diaz, MD

Expert, Patient-Centered Treatment of the Shoulder & Upper Extremity

Dr. Diaz has been in private practice for 10 years. She has performed thousands of upper extremity procedures, and has extensive training and experience in managing degenerative, traumatic, and sports-related conditions of the shoulder and upper extremity. Her practice includes a particular emphasis on shoulder arthroscopy for management of rotator cuff disease and shoulder replacement surgery (including anatomic and reverse designs), with a strong track record of successful outcomes. She offers comprehensive nonoperative management and surgical treatment of upper extremity fractures and soft tissue injuries. Whenever possible, she employs the least invasive treatment option available, including single-incision endoscopic carpal tunnel release for carpal tunnel syndrome, percutaneous needle release (aponeurotomy) for Dupuytren Disease, and small incision, early mobilization protocols for reconstruction of arthritis at the base of the thumb.

Dr. Diaz is a Consultant for the Washington Nationals.

Reviews And Testimonials From Our Patients

  • I saw Dr Diaz a while ago for elbow issue, and she was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. However, I am commenting about a different issue. I just got off the phone with whoever does her scheduling, and she was extremely nice, informative, and helpful. You need to know that she represents your office very well!
