Meet the Expert: Edward Su, M.D.
Dr. Su’s approach: “Driving, cooking, bathing, using tools, computers, and playing sports. We interact with the world largely through our hands, and I appreciate the importance of staying active and pain free.”
Dr. Su’s background: After completing his undergraduate studies at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, Dr. Su moved to New York, New York, where he earned his Medical Degree at the New York School of Medicine, and later completed his Orthopedic Surgery residency at the Hospital for Joint Diseases. He also completed fellowship training for Hand and Upper Extremities at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida.

Additional resources for you
I’m Dr. Ed Su. I’m an orthopedic surgeon, and I specialize in hand and upper extremity surgery. A large part of my job is actually educational. Yes, I do operate, and I do fix things inside the body. But if you don’t know what’s going on and you don’t know how to take of it afterward, then I haven’t done my job. My wife and I are the rarity. We have no connections here. We have no family here. But we were just looking for something different. We grew up on the East Coast. And we just started feeling around the Midwest. And we came and visited Summit. And the Twin Cities is a great place to raise a family, so we decided to try it out. And it’s now six years later, and we’re still here – and having our second kid. Just because we’re surgeons doesn’t mean we always have to operate. Not everything involves pain and needles and knives and stuff. You’re in control of your care. Nobody’s going to do anything to you that you don’t want done. You’re just here to find out what our expert opinion is, based on what I know about your anatomy and physiology and the problem that you have. I would give you different options and different outcomes that would potentially happen, based on whichever direction you choose to go in.
Dr. Wahlquist explains that surgery is only one of many treatments for pain caused by bulging discs.
