Biography

With a clinical practice that spans the range of upper extremity pathology, Todd M. Guyette, MD, has advanced training and interest in the newest techniques for hand and upper extremity pathology. Surgery remains only one pillar of treatment, and many of these diagnoses can be successfully managed without surgery through a coordinated approach that includes therapy, medications, and patient education.

Dr. Guyette’s clinical focus is on the surgical and nonsurgical treatment of complex hand and wrist trauma, nerve compression syndromes of the upper extremity with minimally invasive endoscopic techniques, wrist and digit arthroscopy, arthritis of the hand and wrist, Dupuytren's contracture, as well as skin and soft tissue problems.

His years in practice has solidified his patient philosophy that the localized problems of the upper extremity affect the whole patient, including their work, recreational activities, and even simple daily tasks. He believes that each patient’s treatment must be undertaken with an understanding of that context.

Dr. Guyette lives on the Eastside with his wife and two young daughters.
