Glenn T. Johnson II, M.D.
Hand & Upper Extremity
My philosophy in treating patients is treating them as if they are family. I try to remember with every patient the teaching of Sir William Osler “Listen to your patient – he is telling you the diagnosis.” This emphasizes the importance of listening and trying to educate the patient about their diagnosis so they can make the best decision about his/her care.
The complexity and beauty of the musculoskeletal system is fascinating to me especially the challenging cases. I enjoy assisting patients in returning back to their normal lifestyles. I try to remember that not only am I helping the patient but also the families that are depending on that patient to return back to his/her normal activities.
Today, my practice focuses on upper extremity from shoulder to hand. I have a special interest in arthroscopic treatment of the rotator cuff disorders, shoulder arthritis and sports-related shoulder injuries.
In addition to my medical commitments, I am involved in my church, enjoy spending time with my family, playing ice hockey and coaching my son's ice hockey team.
