  • Video Transcript

    Hi, I’m Dr. Valerie Deardorff, an orthopedic hand and upper extremity specialist at Apex Orthopedics here in Overland Park. I am specifically interested in nerve compression, tendinitis, arthritis, and the treatment of fractures.

    I really enjoy working in the Midwest. People are so down to earth and very appreciative of the care. Being a Midwesterner myself, I feel like I can really connect with my patients on a personal level.

    I love my job because I really enjoy interacting with people, diagnosing a problem, and being able to fix it. My job is very rewarding because at the end of the day I really feel like I’ve accomplished something.

    At home, I spend time with my husband and two children. I really enjoy learning with my family. We enjoy gardening, cooking, traveling, and I really enjoy reading.

"The best part of my job is returning patients to their prior level of function and relief of painful arthritis."
