Austin recently graduated from BYU with his BS in exercise science and plans to attend medical school. He loves connecting with and serving others both on and off the job. When not working, he enjoys spending time with his little family and tries to make them laugh at every given opportunity.
Elite Carpal Tunnel was founded by Dr. Travis A Peterson, a board certified orthopedic hand surgeon who started practicing in 2011. His interest in medicine started in his teens when his participation in sports gave him an “up close and personal” introduction to the field of orthopedics. After multiple shoulder and arm surgeries, Dr. Peterson was amazed that he was able to return to his desired activities with full function. This fascinating introduction to orthopedics ultimately led him to medical school. After medical school, he pursued a five-year orthopedic surgery residency followed by advanced fellowship training in the subspecialty of hand surgery. In the course of his practice experience in Washington and Utah, he has performed thousands of surgical procedures, with more than 2000 of those being carpal tunnel procedures.
While he enjoys a broad range of hand surgery care, Dr. Peterson’s focus is on providing a high-quality carpal tunnel care model that is designed at every level with the patient in mind acknowledging that the patient comes first. His perspective and experience has prepared him to create the Elite Carpal Tunnel solution.
