Niles D. Schwartz, MD

Dr. Niles D. Schwartz’s desire to help those in the community prompted him to pursue a career in orthopedics. Hand surgery seemed a natural fit to fulfill that role.

Dr. Schwartz’s goal is to make a patient whole again. After diagnosis, he’ll discuss all reasonable treatment options and potential outcomes and decide along with the patient on a treatment plan. That sometimes involves multiple steps.

A gardener, woodcrafter and hobby farmer, Dr. Schwartz enjoys time outside of work relaxing with his wife and children and being involved in their school or sports activities.
