H. McMillan Starr, Jr., M.D.

"Playing an active role in the full recovery of a patient from a devastating injury is priceless. To quote a mentor of mine, there is nothing like taking a hand that doesn’t work and making it work again."

Dr. Starr received his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia. He completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Emory University, where he served as Chief Resident. Dr. Starr completed a fellowship in hand, upper extremity, and microvascular surgery at the Curtis National Hand Center in Baltimore, Maryland and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Dr. Starr’s clinical interests include the non-operative and operative treatment of conditions affecting the shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand. While having a special interest in trauma of the hand and upper extremity, including bone, tendon, and nerve repair, Dr. Starr also frequently performs arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist.

Dr. Starr has been honored by the American Orthopaedic Association as an Emerging Leader in orthopedics and is recognized as Board Eligible by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is also a Candidate Member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand.
