About Me

Dr. Barbara Wilson is double board-certified in Hand surgery and General surgery.
Dr Wilson completed her medical degree at the University of Cincinnati and completed a six-year general surgery residency at the University of Pittsburgh. She then trained as a hand surgery fellow with Dr, Swanson in arthritis joint replacement and won an international hand fellowship in trauma at Indiana Hand Center
She practices the latest advances supported by the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and is elected member in the American College of Surgeons since 2003.  She lectures and contributes to the teaching of surgical trainees at the Texas Medical Center.  Dr. Wilson performs minimally invasive surgery to address hand problems with the least amount of surgical trauma returning the patient to their full level of function as soon as biology permits.
Medical Mission outreach has been an important commitment since residency when she did volunteer surgery in Africa and Nicaragua.  She has contributed to free medical clinics in America and abroad throughout her practice. She is a founding volunteer surgeon in the "Touching Hands" organization of the American Hand Surgery Foundation.
