Susan M. McDowell, M.D.View Contact & Scheduling
I also maintain my roots as a general orthopedist by performing partial and total joint replacement surgery. I have a particular interest in limb-sparing surgery and preservation of function.
I perform humanitarian work in locations around the world. Each year, I travel to Thailand to the Barefoot Doctors School, where I train health workers from Myanmar to provide care to people in their villages. In the past, I have travelled to West Bengal, India, to perform hand surgery, and I assisted my father in building a church in Costa Rica.
