Tennyson Block, M.D.
My career began as an orthopedic device engineer. I loved designing implants but didn’t get the opportunity to meet patients and understand their needs and healing process. I chose to become a doctor so I could work directly with patients and personalize the care they receive. I am an orthopedic surgeon with additional fellowship training in hand and upper extremity surgery and I strive to understand the individual values and needs or my patients to optimize care and act as a patient advocate and resource. Some hobbies I enjoy are yoga, swimming, biking, skiing, and anything that includes spending time with my family.
