Shane Cook, MD

Hand & Upper Extremity Surgeon

Dr. Shane Cook completed his Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at the University of Iowa and went on to OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, North Carolina for Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship. As a physician at DMOS Orthopaedic Centers, he specializes in upper extremity surgery.

Dr. Cook chose orthopaedics due to the great care he received while on the field as an athlete himself; as he played football for the University of Colorado, NFL Europe, and New Orleans Saints. His main mission is to help patients maximize their function through surgical and non-surgical means, and he places a priority ensuring his patients understand their diagnosis, treatment options and have all their questions answered.
