Dr. Sharma grew up in the Midwest (Tulsa, OK) and Southwest (Houston, TX) He completed his undergraduate studies at Washington University in St. Louis where he majored in Chemistry and Biochemistry with Honors. He graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1992 and entered Medical School at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX that same year.

He has had the luxury and benefit of training at preeminent institutions with some of this country’s most renowned surgeons.

An additional one year Orthopedic Hand Surgery Fellowship at the University of Washington Department of Orthopedics and Sports Medicine further developed Dr. Sharma’s skills as a hand and wrist surgeon. Additional expertise gained in areas such as wrist pain and pathology, small joint and wrist arthritis, joint replacement, wrist arthroscopy, endoscopic carpal tunnel release, distal radius fractures and trauma reconstruction enabled him to become a well-rounded, yet keen specialist in hand surgery.
