Pediatric Hand Surgery:
F. Brett Shannon, DO
My interest in pediatric hand surgery began as a resident surgeon in training in San Diego, California. My program director in the orthopedic surgery department was an orthopedic surgeon with subspecialty training in hand problems. Through his mentorship I developed an interest in pediatric hand problems.
After completing my military obligations and moving my family to Fort Myers, Florida to begin the practice of pediatric orthopedic surgery, I began seeing the majority of pediatric hand problems in the SW FL region. The problems that typically required surgery included trauma, infections, tumors, and congenital deformities.
