Michael S. Shuler, MD

M.D.

Joined 2008

Dr. Shuler was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for undergraduate education. He then attended Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine for medical school. He trained in orthopedic surgery at Emory University and then spent an additional year in Seattle at the University of Washington. This additional year of training was spent in hand and upper extremity surgery including microsurgical techniques. Dr. Shuler arrived in Athens in 2008. He has been active in medical research and device development. He has several publications related to conditions of the upper extremity as well as compartment syndrome. He currently has several active clinical studies examining upper extremities conditions. He currently is in charge of a Department of Defense grant working toward developing a non-invasive monitoring system for compartment syndrome. Dr. Shuler is board certified in both Orthopedics as well as additional qualifications in surgery of the hand.

Dr. Shuler specializes in Carpal and Cubital Tunnel endoscopic surgery.  Click these links for carpal tunnel print ready and cubital tunnel print ready brochures.


MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY (
MIS)

AOC is setting the standard for minimally invasive surgery.  Dr. Michael Shuler will evaluate your condition and together you will decide if this is the best solution to your problem.  Dr. Shuler performs these procedures in approximately 10 minutes utilizing 1/2 inch incisions resulting in a greatly reduced recovery time, especially compared to traditional surgery.
