Seth Dodds, MD
Dr. Seth Dodds is an orthopedic hand surgeon and Associate Professor at the University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami Florida. He did his orthopedic surgery training at Yale University and a hand fellowship at the University of Washington and Harborview hospital. He went on to return to Yale as a faculty member and eventually chief of hand surgery during his first 10 years in practice. He has been at University of Miami for the past five years. He specializes in complex orthopedic trauma of the hand, wrist, forearm, and elbow. One of his keen interests is using plates to span across joints to provide a stable fracture environment during the initial course of healing of complex articular fractures. These spanning plates allow for mobilization of neighboring articulations and even early loading, but continue to protect the fractured joint. He will be presenting his experience with this type of surgical care for complex articular fractures about the hand and wrist, while offering opportunities for the hand therapists role in optimizing patient function with blood flow restriction therapy.
