Frequently Asked Questions

What is hand surgery?


Hand surgery is a specialized field of medicine focusing on the hand, wrist, and upper extremity. We treat everything from the fingertip up to (but not including) the shoulder.

Does DHC offer only surgical options?


Although our doctors are trained as orthopedic hand surgeons, many of the conditions we treat do not require surgery. Once your condition has been diagnosed, both you and your provider will determine the appropriate treatment plan.

Where is DHC located?


The DHC office is conveniently located in North Dallas on the Medical City campus, in Professional Building C, Suite 425. Our physical address is: 7777 Forest Lane, C-425 Dallas, TX 75230 Our patients may valet or self-park for a small fee. For complete directions to the office, please click here.

What insurance does DHC accept?


DHC accepts most major insurance plans, including Aetna, BCBS, Cigna, United Health Care, and Medicare. With the ever-evolving healthcare insurance market, we strongly recommend that you contact the member services department listed on your insurance card to verify that our providers are contracted with your particular plan.

What should I bring to my appointment?


You, or your responsible party, should bring photo identification and all insurance cards to every appointment. It is helpful to bring any previous medical records and items such as imaging studies/CDs, previous operative reports, pertinent lab studies, and nerve conduction studies/EMGs to help us understand your situation and prior treatment, ensure efficiency throughout your visit and to avoid unnecessary duplication of medical testing. We also recommend that you have a current list of your medications. In addition, please make sure you have completed your online new patient forms through your DHC patient portal. If these have not been completed prior to your arrival, your appointment time may be delayed and, in some cases, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment to a different day.

Does DHC treat children?


DHC treats both adults and children. Our providers received extra training in pediatric and congenital hand conditions at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital.

Where do the providers at DHC operate?


Our providers operate at Medical City Dallas, Medical City Ambulatory Surgery Center, and North Central Surgical Center. Please see the Surgery Packet link on our Patient Center page for facility details.
