Biography

Dr. Peck earned her undergraduate degree in Biology at Indiana University in 2002. She was awarded her medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2007, and completed her Orthopaedic Surgery residency at Indiana University. Following residency, Dr. Peck has pursued additional sub-specialty training in three areas. She completed a pediatric orthopaedic surgery fellowship at Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital in Orlando, Florida, a hand, upper extremity, and microvascular surgery fellowship at the renowned Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, and a pediatric hand and upper extremity surgery fellowship, including the brachial plexus, at Shriner’s Children’s Hospital For Children in Sacramento, California.

Dr. Peck’s clinical and surgical interests include all-inclusive care of the upper extremity from the shoulder to finger tips for adult and pediatric patients including arthritis, trauma, compressive neuropathies, arthroscopy, congenital hand and upper extremity conditions, peripheral nerve surgery including the brachial plexus. Dr. Peck works closely with each patient to present treatment options, understand the goals they hope to achieve, and help them make the best treatment decisions based on these goals.

Dr. Peck has a great interest in educating medical students, residents, and fellows in hand and upper extremity surgery, in addition to writing scientific articles and book chapters. She is a member of the Residency Education Committee for the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. Also, she has a special interest in volunteer medicine overseas and completed a surgical mission trip to Nicaragua.

Dr. Peck is a candidate member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, the American Association for Hand Surgery, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, the Indiana State Medical Association, and Health Volunteers Overseas.

Outside of the Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center, Dr. Peck has many interests including cycling, cooking, photography, watching the Hoosiers and spending time with her family.

More About Dr. Peck

What inspires you about your work?
It is truly humbling that people trust you to take care of them when they are at their most vulnerable. It is a privilege to be able to help, and restore their function for the better.
What do you want patients to know about you, your medical career, or your specialty?
My nickname is “ocho” because I took 8 years to finish my training. Orthopaedic surgery took 5 years which is standard and then I did three fellowships (peds ortho, hand and upper extremity and then peds hand and upper extremity plus brachial plexus). The extra training gives me a unique perspective when treating patients.
How would you describe your approach to patient care?
I like to approach conditions as holistically as possible. As we are learning more and more in medicine, it is important to treat the whole person because it has a profound effect on their recovery. For example, making sure that they are not vitamin d deficient if they have a fracture or are on an anti-inflammatory diet as part of their treatment for arthritis. Secondly, I want to treat everyone as if my grandmother was sitting across from me and ensure trust in the doctor-patient relationship
