Dr. Murthy specializes in the treatment of general Orthopaedics with a focus on the elbow, wrist and fingers. Her interests include hand fractures, ligament injuries, nerve conditions, arthritis and tendinitis and how these injuries or conditions impact day to day function. The relationship between physician and patient is essential to her, and she believes that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment.
