In this episode, we have the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Wren McCallister, a highly accomplished orthopedic surgeon who holds double board certification and has completed a fellowship in his field. Dr. McCallister delves into the vital topic of health awareness, emphasizing how having the correct information can not only save you money but also safeguard the well-being of your hands and legs. Furthermore, he highlights the significance of investing in appropriate equipment for your home office, underscoring how this choice can significantly impact your overall health in the long term. Join us as we delve into these essential aspects of maintaining a healthy and thriving lifestyle.

 

Dr. Wren is a board-certified orthopedic hand surgeon who has spent the past two decades practicing in Edmonds, Washington, where he lives with his wife and three children.

 

After helping thousands of people overcome hand pain and numbness, he noticed a pattern emerge. Frustrated by the complex and inefficient process of getting help, not to mention the cost, people were ignoring their hand problems for far too long. 

 

And it all boiled down to an information gap – a lack of access to expert, actionable information and education about hand problems. Dr. Wren started HandGuyMD to fill that gap. 

 

HandGuyMD has a goal of helping 1 million people save time, money, and stress, getting relief from hand pain and numbness, and Dr. Wren looks forward to helping you next.
