Dr. Stephanie DeBuck has been an orthopedic surgeon for over 17 years, and joined CMA in February of 2013. She treats orthopedic hand, wrist, and upper extremity problems.

She believes it’s important for her patients to know that care of orthopedic problems requires a team approach, and considers her patients to be a big part of the team! Dr. DeBuck encourages patient participation in decision making, from initial visit through rehabilitation.
