Meet Veronica Diaz, MD
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.
- small incision, early mobilization protocols for reconstruction of arthritis at the base of the thumb.
