Alexander D. Blevens, M.D.

I have special interest, training, and expertise in hand surgery. The majority of my practice involves the surgical reconstruction and rehabilitation of degenerative,  traumatic, congenital, and inflammatory conditions of the hand, wrist and elbow. I believe that communication and knowledge are the keys to providing the finest medical care. I have assembled a team of professional registered nurses, certified hand therapists, and occupational therapists that all work together at the Hand Center of Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists to expedite your recovery.
