Experience
Dr. Todd Guyette began his training and exposure to orthopedics while at Harvard Medical School, completing his formal training in orthopedic surgery at the world renowned Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Additional subspecialty training was then obtained at the Curtis National Hand Center, the upper extremity trauma center for four states. In addition to a busy clinical practice built on the strong academic foundation, he continues to lecture and chair symposiums directed at teaching his fellow healthcare works about pathology of the upper extremity.
Philosophy
With a clinical practice that spans the range of upper extremity pathology, I have advanced training and interest in the newest techniques for hand and wrist trauma, arthritis of the upper extremity, nerve compression syndromes including carpal tunnel, tumors around the hand and arm, and repetitive stress injuries. The trend is towards less invasive procedures to allow more rapid return to work, sports, and daily activities. Surgery is just one option; many of these diagnoses can be successfully managed without surgery with a coordinated approach including therapy, medications, and patient education. Even though my focus is on the upper extremity pathology, it is important to recognize that these problems commonly affect the whole patient ? their work, recreational activities, and even simple daily tasks ? and their treatment must be undertaken in that context.
Personal Information
Although raised in southern California, and spending over a decade on the east coast for his training, I was drawn to Seattle after a traveling fellowship to the region during medical school. I met my wife here, and nowadays I can be found chasing my two young daughters around the shores of Lake Washington or the trails of the foothills.
