Dr. Timothy B. Larson, MD

Board Certified Orthopedic Hand and Upper Extremity Surgeon

After graduating from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French, Dr. Larson left the Rocky Mountains for the Midwest and the Ohio State University for medical school. He graduated Magna Cum Laude honors and received the Academic Excellence Scholarship for the top performance in his class, and was elected as a junior medical student to join the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society.

Dr. Larson performed his internship and residency training in Charlotte, NC at the Carolinas Medical Center, a nationally recognized training program with strong clinical, surgical, and research training. It was there that he discovered his love for hand anatomy and hand surgery, and upon graduating he returned to Ohio for 1 year of specialized training at the Mary S. Stern Hand & Upper Extremity Fellowship in Cincinnati.

In 2013, Dr. Larson began practice in Denton, bringing his surgical knowledge and skill as Denton’s only full-time orthopedic hand surgeon with specialized training in complex disorders of the hand, wrist, and elbow, including advanced training in endoscopic carpal tunnel release, wrist and elbow arthroscopy, surgical, percutaneous and collagenase treatment (Xiaflex) for Dupuytren’s disease, and specialized care for fractures and trauma to the hand and upper extremity. This complements his advanced training in finger, thumb, wrist, and elbow arthritis treatment, including joint replacement, thumb basilar joint arthroplasty, and minimally invasive treatment of tendon disorders of the upper extremity.

Aside from enjoying a busy and rewarding orthopedic practice, Dr. Larson enjoys spending time with his wife and children, running and participating in Ironman triathlons, playing tennis and pickleball, serving as a youth basketball and volleyball coach, and traveling.

Andra Sterzik

Certified Hand Therapist (OTR, CHT)

Andra is a 1995 graduate of the the University of North Texas School of Community Service where she obtained her Bachelor degree. She was named Outstanding Undergraduate Student in her Rehabilitation Studies program. She went on to attend Texas Women’s University and graduated Summa cum Laude in 1997 with her Master of Occupational Therapy degree.

Over the last twenty plus years, Andra has treated diverse patient populations in a variety of therapy settings. Her career began at Parkland Hospital as an OT on one of the largest civilian burn units in the nation. Andra worked with an extensive team to treat both child and adult burn patients in the outpatient, intensive care and acute care settings. In her time there, she also gained extensive experience in the treatment of traumatic hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder injuries due to Parkland’s Level I trauma center status.

While Andra’s career includes working for several large hospital systems, the last twelve years have been spent in an outpatient setting as a hand therapist. Her focus has included orthopedic and neurological injuries, sports medicine, work with musicians and an interest in post surgical recovery. After years of working in hand therapy, in 2011 Andra passed a comprehensive test of advanced clinical skills and theory in upper quarter rehabilitation to become a Certified Hand Therapist.

Andra views therapy as a partnership between therapist and patient. Her role is to provide the anatomical knowledge, treatment understanding and therapy skills needed to progress a person through their recovery process so they can return to their favorite activities, perform their daily tasks, and help prevent future injuries as well.

Andra is proud to call Denton her home of almost thirty years. She lives locally with her husband, two teenage sons and dogs, Fiona and Kira. If you can’t find her reading or walking, she will see her in the stands cheering on her sons.
