With Dr Mensch


About Dr Mensch

I am board eligible in orthopedic surgery and fellowship trained in hand and upper extremity surgery.  My practice encompasses traumatic and degenerative diseases of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder.  I specialize in nerve compression issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve and tendon injuries and arthritis.  I perform joint replacements of the small finger joints as well as elbow and shoulder.  As part of my care I work closely with the therapist in order to ensure a speedy recovery.

My passion is hand surgery and working with patients.  The intricacies of the hand and upper extremity have drawn my attention since the beginning of my training. I enjoy diagnosing and treating complex problems and helping patients return to activities they love.

My diverse background has driven my interest to experience different geographical locations during my training.  I have been fortunate enough train in the northeast as well as Texas while also making a stop in Zurich.  In all of these locations I gained unique experiences in which to add to my skillset to treat my patients.

Reviews Mean So Much!

Reviews mean so much to both the doctor providing care as well as to prospective patients. We appreciate your reviews!

Dr. Mensch is a refreshing change from past Dr. experiences. His willingness to provide information, availability for phone calls, and general concern for his patients has been wonderful.

Love this Guy!! Very professional and great bedside manner. He did surgery on my 14 year old and could not ask for a better Dr.

After months of getting nowhere on why my elbows hurt like hell, I now understand why! Left with the info I needed to be able to move forward and get rid of this pain. Really appreciated the time he spent with me. Thanks so much.
