Dr. Puri will serve as an assistant professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.
Dr. Puri employs open, minimally invasive and microsurgical techniques to treat a range of problems, including broken bones, nerve injuries, carpel tunnel syndrome and arthritis.
Dr. Puri also works with a multidisciplinary team to repair damage to the brachial plexus, the network of nerves running through the shoulder, arm and hand. Injuries occur when the nerves are stretched, compressed, cut or torn, resulting in loss of feeling and function.
In treating brachial plexus injuries, Dr. Puri employs delicate techniques such as nerve grafts, nerve transfers and transfers of muscles or tendons.
Dr. Puri earned his medical degree and completed a residency in orthopaedic surgery at Tufts University Medical Center. He completed a fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.
