Todd Twiss, MD

Orthopaedic Surgeon

Todd Twiss, MD, is pictured here with patient Maggie Carrier, age 7. She fell while playing with kids in her neighbor’s yard. She tried to break her fall with her arms extended. The force of the fall and stress on the arm caused it to break the growth plate. Dr. Twiss helped Maggie to heal and get back to playing with her neighbors!
