About

Dr. Blalock is a board-certified hand and wrist orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the treatment of conditions affecting the upper extremity. Treatment focuses include upper extremity trauma, fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, other nerve entrapment syndromes, arthritic conditions and trigger finger. He offers both open and endoscopic carpal tunnel release as well as arthroscopy.

As usual, my doctor and the staff never disappoint. I just had a day surgery a week ago and I couldn't have been in better hands during the entire process. Keep up the great work!

Dr Blalock ha been dedicated to repairing my wrist from the surgery in MX, repairing any damage and/or infection, and giving me the best possible result for the break. He's kept me informed and discussed possible solutions with me before proceeding.
