Shobhit V. Minhas, MD

About Dr. Minhas

Dr. Minhas is a fellowship-trained orthopedic hand and upper extremity surgeon, with expertise in treating conditions from the elbow down to the fingertips in both children and adults. For Dr. Minhas, a key component of care is to take the time to help patients understand the nature of their condition and the “why” behind treatment options. This ensures that the treatment decided together fits a patient’s life, meets expectations, and allows for active participation in care. While injuries and conditions of the hand are quite common, every patient is different, each with a unique set of goals and challenges. Dr. Minhas’ main priority is to get patients back to the activities quickly and as safely as possible.

Dr. Minhas offers a wide range of specialized care, including:

  • Hand and wrist arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Trigger finger
  • DeQuervain Tenosynovitis
  • Fractures of the fingers, hand, wrist, forearm, and elbow
  • Sports and overuse injuries of the hand and wrist
  • Tendon and ligament conditions of the hand and wrist
  • Thumb arthritis
  • Dupuytren contractures
  • Nerve injuries and conditions
  • Ganglion cysts of the hand and wrist
  • Wrist arthroscopy
  • Work related injuries of the upper extremity

Dr. Minhas also works closely with hand therapists for non-surgical treatment and optimal post-surgical recovery results.

In his free time, Dr. Minhas enjoys traveling, music, trying new restaurants, and going to football and basketball games.
