DR. AMIT PATEL
Dr. Patel grew up in the windy city of Chicago. He is a graduate of Loyola University Chicago where he received his Bachelors in Science with the highest distinction of Summa Cum Laude with Honors. He then proceeded to Loyola Stritch School of Medicine where he received his medical degree. He completed his general surgery residency in Grand Rapids, MI. He then returned to Chicago to complete a fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Rush University Medical Center.

Thereafter, he further subspecialized in hand and microsurgery at the Hand Center of San Antonio. This fellowship is considered to be one of the most premiere fellowships in the country and it is also where he had the privilege of training with Dr. David P. Green, who is the author of the most widely known textbook in the world, Green’s Operative Hand Surgery.

Dr. Patel’s main emphasis is listening to his patients and providing them exceptional care. Although he will always have Chicago roots, he now considers Texas his home. He loves teaching and is engaged in active research, and has had several national publications. Dr. Patel loves traveling, playing sports, and spending time with his wife and children. He speaks English, Gujarati, Hindi and some Spanish.
