Laura Dhanansayan, PA


Laura Dhanansayan, PA, is a physician assistant at UW Health. She specializes in hand surgery and treats conditions involving the hand, wrist and elbow such as arthritis, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fractures and other traumatic injuries.

In her practice, Laura strives to help people reach their optimal health and function. She listens to her patients and their goals for recovery and educates them about their conditions and available treatment options. Laura guides patients through the decision-making process to discover which treatments may be the best fit for them personally.

As a former athlete, Laura developed an interest in orthopedics because of the opportunity to guide patients from injury or pain to a point of improved comfort and activity level.

Outside of work, Laura loves traveling and being outdoors with her family — hiking, cycling, swimming and skiing.

I like to present the options and help patients decide what might be best for them.
