Practice Overview

Shashank S. Dwivedi, MD, is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in the operative and nonoperative management of hand and upper extremity conditions as well as orthopedic trauma. He completed an Orthopedic Trauma Fellowship at Brown University and the prestigious Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship through the University of Michigan Department of Plastic Surgery. His clinical interests include whole-body fracture care, as well as the management of upper extremity ailments such as Dupuytren’s disease, hand and wrist fractures, ligament and tendon injuries, joint replacement, microsurgery, and upper extremity compressive neuropathies such as carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome.

“Excellent orthopedic care requires a patient-centered focus. Technical expertise must be matched by a compassionate and thoughtful bedside manner to obtain the best possible outcome for the patient. Teamwork is critical, as the surgeon is only one part of a team that includes therapists, nurses, and the patient.”

Patient Testimonials

January 29, 2024

Julie Y.

I am so thankful I found Dr. Dwivedi when I went to TCO Urgent Care after a bike accident and the resulting thumb problem. He had such a wonderful way of explaining and watching that I actually understood the procedure needed. He was able to get me into surgery within two weeks and I am so happy with everything – the process, his demeanor, his knowledge and patience. I have to look pretty hard to find where the surgery scar is. My mobility and thumb strength is amazing too. I highly recommend Dr. Dwivedi. He is an excellent hand surgeon and I feel so fortunate he was at the TCO Urgent Care when I stopped in for help. Thank you so much Dr. Dwivedi!

Dr. Dwivedi provided me with excellent service in resolving my carpal tunnel issues with both hands. He explained what it was, how it affected my hands and wrists, what the surgery entailed and what to expect post-surgery. He answered all my questions and I was completely satisfied with the experience. His care team was outstanding and set up appointments for surgery, post-op and therapy as well as complete pre-op instructions. I highly recommend Dr. Dwivedi and his care team members at TCO for orthopedic problem resolution.

My hand feels so much better after surgery. I am able to sleep so much better. The pain is really missing now. Dr. Dwivedi was so easy to communicate with and listened to all my concerns. The surgery went so well on my left hand and I’m having surgery on the right one too. Many thanks to Dr. Dwivedi and his wonderful staff.

Dr. Dwivedi was very straight forward with diagnosing my injury and the severity of it. He thoroughly explained the options I had and I chose surgery. I am currently 10 days post-surgery and my hand is healing very fast! I’ve had no complications and he has guided me through the steps required to heal the fastest, which I am doing. He is an excellent surgeon and a great guy, so I highly recommend him.

Dr. Dwivedi is a top notch orthopedic surgeon. He did a fantastic job on my right hip, putting three screws into my femur. He showed his care for me as his patient by answering all my concerns and questions. I would highly recommend him.
