Dr. Hovis treats all conditions of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand from simple to complex. He specializes in operative and non-operative treatment of adult and pediatric fractures, tendon injuries, ligament injuries, vascular injuries, and nerve injuries of the hand and upper extremity. He also specializes in operative and non-operative treatment of degenerative conditions of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand, brachial plexus injuries, and congenital hand deformities as well as performing arthroscopy of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist and microsurgery. Dr. Hovis believes it is an honor to be involved in the care of his patients, and he makes it a priority that they return to maximum function.
