Learn about hand and wrist issues; surgeon holds seminar

Posted

Dr. Allison Hunter, a fellowship-trained hand and upper extremity surgeon, will discuss common causes and solutions for hand and wrist issues at a free community education seminar on Tuesday, Aug. 16. The seminar includes a complimentary lunch for all who RSVP by Aug. 12.

Hunter will present "I Have My Grandmother's Hands – Solutions for Common Ailments of the Hand and Wrist" at the Orange Beach Senior Activity Center from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. The Orange Beach Senior Activity Center is located at 26251 Canal Road in Orange Beach.

Topics for the lunch and learn event include carpal tunnel syndrome, small joint arthritis and tendonitis of the hand and wrist.

A native of Eastern Kentucky, Hunter received her medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine in 2015. She completed her orthopaedic surgery residency at UAB and fellowship training at the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Pennsylvania.

Throughout her training, Hunter has worked with patients of all ages, from children to the aging adult, to injured athletes and workers — treating everything from arthritis, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome to neuropathies, hand, wrist and elbow fractures and tendon reconstructions.

"My goal is to provide excellent patient care by understanding the problem, reaching the correct diagnosis and engaging each individual patient in the treatment approach that is right for that person," Hunter said. "The process is very much a dialogue as we work together to achieve the same goal — getting each patient back to the life and the activities they enjoy."

There is no charge to attend the seminar; however, space is limited and reservations are required by calling (251) 981-3440 by Friday, Aug. 12. Complimentary lunch will be provided to all who RSVP by Aug. 12.
