Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic welcomes orthopaedic hand and upper extremity specialist Dr. Megan Crosmer to its team of experts.
For some, working on hands seems like a daunting task—with small bones, let alone 27 of them, hand surgery requires an ability to work with intricate details. However, Dr. Megan Crosmer, the newest addition to the Jewett Orthopaedic family, likes a good challenge.
When asked about why she specialized in hand and upper extremity orthopaedics, Crosmer said it was simple—she “loved logic problems.” For Crosmer, the hand is a very intricate part of the body, and to her any problem was a logical one. She enjoys thinking about difficult problems and figuring out solutions, so orthopaedics was the perfect fit. As for surgery, Crosmer enjoys its detail and active nature; fittingly, working with her hands. But she also enjoys being able to return patients back to enjoying life and restoring the quality of life they had before their injury or complication.
While Crosmer is new to Jewett, she isn’t new to Florida—Crosmer is originally from St. Petersburg and attended the University of Florida for her undergraduate degree. After, she took a break from Florida and attended the University of Michigan Medical School, did residency at Duke University Hospital, and finished her fellowship at Indiana Hand to Shoulder center. Still, she never forgot Florida.
“It was always in the back of my mind to come back,” said Crosmer. “ It’s like coming home again.”
Dr. Crosmer is excited to be working with Jewett and Jewett is happy to welcome her back to Florida. She will be joining the seven other hand surgeons and will be seeing patients at Windermere, the RDV Sportsplex, and the newest location in Lady Lake.
