With interests in science, research and fixing things, Richard Hutchison, M.D., FACS, found his calling in surgery, where he could direct his interests into a rapidly changing field with lifelong learning opportunities.
Dr. Hutchison enjoys working with the hand surgery team, where he is able to help patients resume their normal activities. Some of his most rewarding patients have been infants who were born without a thumb.
“The thumb is needed for all the important hand activities, and I have been able to improve their lives by creating a new thumb for the children.”
Outside of work, Dr. Hutchison enjoys boating, studying ancient Egypt and playing the banjo.
