Languages Spoken:
  • English

Lindley B. Wall, M.D., was born and raised in Missouri and went to college in North Carolina, at Duke University. Afterwards, she returned to Missouri for medical school and orthopedic surgery training at Washington University in St. Louis. Continuing her training, she completed a hand surgery fellowship in Cincinnati, Ohio followed by a second fellowship in pediatric upper extremity surgery in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Wall returned to St. Louis to work at Washington University and obtained her Masters in Clinical Science Investigation.

As her practice has developed, she has maintained a strong interest in caring for the pediatric upper extremity, specifically congenital hand and arm conditions (differences of the hand and arm from birth), traumatic injuries, sports injuries, cerebral palsy and birth brachial plexus injuries.

As a mother of two young children, she has a unique insight into the care and treatment of children. Her overall goal is to provide children with the best possible use of their hand and arm, and to optimize their physical function and happiness.
