Charles Benfield, MD, is an orthopedic surgeon. His professional interests include hand, wrist and elbow surgery.
An empathetic listener, he wants all of his patients to feel like they have been heard and that he understands how their problem or injury affects their lives. Shared decision making is an important part of his approach to patient care as each patient is an individual with their own needs and goals. In addition, his experience with a wide range of both surgical and non-surgical treatment options allows him to tailor his treatment to each patient and problem.
In his spare time, he enjoys chasing around his three young children, cooking with his wife, playing golf and traveling.
“The best part about my job is helping patients get back to doing what they want to do. For some that could be returning to work, sports or hobbies. For others it could simply be improving daily pain and function.” – Charles Benfield, MD
