What is a Hand Surgeon?

Hand surgeons treat a variety of patients and conditions such as:

  • Acute trauma, chronic injuries and overuse syndromes
  • Congenital and acquired
  • Degenerative, inflammatory and post traumatic arthritis
  • Infections
  • Tumors
  • Nerve injuries
  • Microsurgery
  • Patients of all ages

What’s the difference between a Fellowship Trained Hand Surgeon, a Plastic Surgeon and a General Surgeon? All can perform hand surgery, but only Fellowship Trained Hand Surgeons have the extensive training in conditions and problems of the hands and upper extremity along with the related surgical skills and techniques required to treat them.
