As a fellowship-trained hand and upper extremity surgeon, Dr. Aimee Riley understands that the hand and arm are an integral way in which we interact with the world and our surroundings and a lack of upper extremity function can greatly lessen one’s quality of life. Dr. Riley is dedicated to offering the latest surgical and nonsurgical hand and upper extremity treatments, including trauma surgery and advanced microsurgical techniques, to restore her patients’ function and help them return to enjoying the activities that make them happy.

After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree summa cum laude from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, Dr. Riley earned her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, Virginia. She completed her orthopedic surgery internship and residency at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine and Doctors Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She went on to receive additional specialty training in hand and upper extremity surgery at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. 

When she is not seeing patients, Dr. Riley spends time with her family and enjoys running, cycling, hiking, and camping.

“Dr. Riley was very concerned how my shoulder was healing and always took x-rays of both my shoulder and elbow. She felt I needed surgery on my elbow as soon as my heart doctor approved. I am now healed and have no pain. She is an excellent professional and I would recommend her to others.”
