A team of orthopedic surgeons dedicated to treating hand and upper extremity conditions.

The hands, wrist, forearm, elbow, and shoulder are critical to nearly every activity of daily living. When injury or disease of the bones, nerves, joints, and muscles threatens their functioning, overall quality of life is at risk as well. Hospital for Special Surgery’s Hand Service is world-renowned for treating children and adults suffering from all types of bone and soft-tissue conditions of the hand and upper extremity.

Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship

The primary goal of the Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship program is to expose and train fellows in a wide range of treatments from the most complex peripheral nerve dysfunction to the more common sports-related injuries to the hand. Each fellow is involved in one of the busiest outpatient ambulatory surgery operative services at the hospital. A fellow works closely with our attending surgeons and residents, assisting in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of a multitude of conditions affecting the hand and upper extremity including trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, complex rheumatoid arthritis, hand and wrist fractures, complex elbow injuries, non- and malunions, congenital abnormalities, tumors of the upper extremity, complicated pediatric disorders, cerebral palsy, neuromuscular disorders, and brachial plexus injuries.
