Denise Durant, MD - Lakeshore Hand Surgery

Dr. Durant has over 12 years practice experience in Hand Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Durant recently opened Lakeshore Hand Surgery PLLC, her own independent practice, in order to focus more on hand and upper extremity surgery.

Dr. Durant grew up in rural northern New York and did her undergraduate work at St Lawrence University. She received her medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In 2001, she began her residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Vermont. Upon residency completion in 2006, she completed fellowship training in hand surgery at the well renowned Mary S. Stern Fellowship in Hand Surgery in Cincinnati, OH. Dr. Durant is thrilled to have the opportunity to offer expert care, in an intimate environment, with her sub-specialty focus, right here in Chittenden County.
