Dr. Michael LeGeyt: Our Hand, Wrist & Elbow Specialist


Helping Patients Restore Function and MobilityHand, Wrist & Elbow Specialist, Dr Legeyt

You depend on your hands to perform countless tasks each day. In the absence of pain or injury, you may take their amazing abilities for granted. Your hands and wrists contain an intricate network of nerves and blood vessels, as well as bones and tendons, ligaments, and muscles, some of which extend to the elbow.

Wrist injuries, hand disorders, and elbow conditions are common and can cause pain, loss of sensation, loss of movement, and impaired function. The constant motion of your hands and wrists also makes them susceptible to repetitive motion disorders and arthritis. Problems in these areas must be carefully treated because of all the structures and functions involved.

educating you about your condition, and provide the necessary follow- up care and rehabilitation to help you live an active and pain-free lifestyle.

In addition to my clinical and surgical duties, I enjoy spending time with my wife and five children, as well as taking an occasional fishing trip. The experiences I share with you, among others, convinced me to pursue a career in orthopaedics. My family continues to inspire me to be the best I can be. I am dedicated to helping people recover and offer my patients the best care and service possible

I look forward to meeting you.

Inspired To Help Others on the Path to Recovery

Dr. LeGeyt’s passion for medicine began as a child when his tonsils were removed. He still remembers the caring manner of his family physician, who spent the time to explain the procedure and went the extra mile to deliver a better healthcare experience.

At age 11, Dr. LeGeyt learned firsthand the miracles of modern medicine when his father fell while working construction. The orthopaedic team was able to save his father’s life and, after years of therapy and countless operations, restore him to good health. Both of these experiences shaped Dr. LeGeyt’s desire to pursue a medical career where he could make a difference in peoples’ lives by delivering the best care and service possible.
