Meet Dr. Lauren MacTaggart – Orthopedic Surgeon and upper extremity specialist at Cornerstone Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

“ActivArmor allows my patients to maintain an active lifestyle while recovering from their injury.”

Dr. MacTaggart is an athlete and seasoned orthopedic surgeon, specializing in the full range of hand, wrist, and elbow conditions.  She provides the latest treatments, including fracture care, microvascular surgery, nerve decompression, repair or reconstruction, fusions and replacements, bracing, injections, and arthroscopy.

As an active member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery, the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and the American Academy of Hand Surgery, she knows exactly what she’s talking about when she says:

“ActivArmor provides the ability to manage acute and chronic conditions like no other immobilization modality.  My patients have the ability to clean, touch and see the injured area, reducing the risk of cast claustrophobia and poor hygiene.”

Dr. MacTaggart graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA, where she also played on the women’s soccer team. She attended medical school at The University of Washington, graduating Magna Cum Laude and was nominated to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honors society. After medical school, Dr. MacTaggart completed her residency training at The University of Washington in Seattle, WA. Following residency, she completed a fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery at The Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center/Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA.

Outside of the office and operating room, Dr. MacTaggart enjoys hiking, biking, skiing.
