Adam Shar, MD, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who practices at the UT Health East Texas Orthopedic Institute. “My job is to maximize the patient’s potential for improvement and help get the patient to a better condition than he or she was in before treatment.”
Dr. Shar understands the importance of building relationships with his patients. “I’m patient-centered. My treatment is contingent upon how the patient is feeling and what the patient’s goals are.”
He specializes in treatment of the upper extremities, including fractures or treatment of ligaments or tendons of the hand, wrist and forearm, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, arthritis, elbow disorders and Dupuytren’s contracture.
