She is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation at the University of Miami School of Medicine and former Director of Upper Extremity Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
The doctor’s acclaimed career in medicine began after she earned her medical degree from the University of Texas School of Medicine at San Antonio in 1978. She then went on to complete her internship in general surgery and her residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine in 1979 and 1983, respectively. A year later, she completed her fellowship in hand surgery at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Following her education, she became board-certified in orthopedic surgery and surgery of the hand by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS). The ABOS is an organization with the goal of establishing educational and professional standards for orthopedic residents and surgeons as well as evaluating the qualifications and competence of orthopedic surgeons.
Among her professional affiliations, Dr. Ouellette is a member of the American Orthopedic Association, the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, the Orthopedic Trauma Association, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, and the Orthopedic Research Association.
Serving in numerous clinical and academic leadership roles, she attributes her success to her passion for fixing hands so that individuals can express themselves. Her research interests include wrist instability, biomechanics, nerve injury repair, skin coverage and psychological intervention for upper extremity trauma patients. She is widely published in peer-reviewed medical journals and is an invited speaker at national and international academic symposiums.
Hand surgery is surgery of the hand, the wrist, and the peripheral nerves of the upper limb. It also encompasses reconstructive surgery that improves upper limb function. Many disorders and injuries of the hand are treated without surgery, using splints, taping, injections, and hand physiotherapy. Hand surgeons care for these problems with and without surgery. They are specially trained to operate when necessary. Many hand surgeons are also experts in diagnosing and caring for shoulder and elbow problems.
In honor of her clinical expertise, Dr. Ouellette is the recipient of Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020), On-Time Doctor Award (2020), Patients’ Choice Award (2008, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2020), and Top 10 Doctor – State (2014).
In her spare time, she enjoys playing the violin, knitting, and cooking. Her favorite professional publications include the Journal of the Hand and the Journal of Bone and Joint Disease.
