Dr. David B. Jones Jr. is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic hand surgeon from Platte, SD, who trained at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. As a hand surgeon for nearly 20 years, he has practiced specialized, patient-centered care, helping people of all ages understand their hand, wrist, forearm, or elbow conditions, and assisting them in choosing personalized treatment.
Being a hand surgeon, he strives to understand which issues are important to his patients and first explores all non-operative solutions. He helps patients with surgical and non-surgical specialty care, including hand therapy, exercises, medications, injections, splinting, and casting.
He enjoys working together with patients to optimize and restore their function and quality of life by addressing their injury or pain and ultimately seeing them get back to the life and activities that they love.
