Dr. Abeyewardene completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Michigan State University. He then completed advanced fellowship training in hand to shoulder surgery at the University of Florida. At his fellowship, he trained under Dr. Paul Dell, one of the preeminent minds in hand surgery for the last 35 years.

Dr. Abeyewardene is a skilled surgeon who performs both inpatient and outpatient procedures. Most of his elective procedures are performed on an outpatient basis at a surgery center, where patients can go home the same day. Among other advanced treatments, he offers endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery, arthroscopic wrist procedures, and ultrasound-guided injections. He is committed to a patient-centric care model to create personalized treatment plans based on the patient’s unique needs. He also understands that health care can be stressful and expensive, and never orders tests or recommends surgery unless absolutely necessary so that health care costs can be kept to a minimum. 

Dr. Abeyewardene is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters and is an avid United States soccer and Arsenal F.C. supporter.
