About Us

Welcome to HSNM

Hand Surgery of Northern Michigan (HSNM) was founded in 1994 by senior partner Mark Leslie, MD and remains the only medical practice in northern Michigan devoted exclusively to the care of the wrist and hand. Paul Jacobson, MD joined the practice in 2000, and our newest surgeon, Michael Morris MD, joined the practice in August of 2018. Our board certified subspecialty trained hand surgeons possess expert knowledge and skills to treat the full spectrum of hand conditions.

Everyone on the HSNM staff, from our physicians to our administrative staff, is dedicated to providing high-quality, state-of-the-art personalized care. We also strive to maintain both efficiency and cost-effectiveness, and to make our services as available as possible to anyone needing them. While surgery is indicated for some cases, we often effectively treat wrist and hand conditions through more conservative/non-surgical means.

Our offices and surgery center are housed in a new, comfortable, and technologically sophisticated facility conveniently located near Munson Medical Center in Traverse City, Michigan. Here, we offer radiography and an operative suite, as well as in-house occupational therapy staffed by certified hand therapists.

At HSNM, we are committed to making our patients’ visit and care a positive experience and to render care that maximizes hand function as quickly as possible.
