Hand & Upper Extremity

“I chose to become an orthopedic surgeon because I wanted to improve patients’ lives and help them get back to enjoying the activities they love. I believe each patient is unique, which is why I take a personalized treatment approach. After discussing a patient’s goals and desires, I work with them to come up with a treatment plan that not only improves their function and decreases their pain but also gets them back to living an active life.”

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Bear was very professional and very kind open. He made me feel really relaxed.

Dr. Bear’s exam was thorough and thoughtful. This provided me a relatively high confidence level in his recommended course of treatment, along with an understanding of further measures that may be needed if the initial treatment did not resolve my finger pain and movement issues.

The staff was friendly. Dr. Bear was super nice, and I was made to feel confident in his ability to proceed with surgery. He also has a sense of humor!

Dr. Bear is an excellent surgeon. Listens to his patients. Explores all options for treatment & explains the choices that will enable the patient &/or patient’s family to make the right choices.

David Bear is a rockstar. We are so fortunate to have somebody of his training and qualifications working in this community. I have had him do carpal tunnel surgery on both wrists. It was virtually painless, and I have no scars. I can’t express how grateful I am for the relief - no more numbness.
