This program focuses on the comprehensive treatment of hand and upper extremity conditions, including congenital, traumatic, degenerative, and inflammatory disorders.

Fellows in this program will work closely with experienced hand surgeons, gaining hands-on experience in the diagnosis, management, and surgical treatment of complex hand and upper extremity conditions. Through a combination of clinical rotations, didactic lectures, and research opportunities, fellows will develop a deep understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics, and pathology of the hand and upper extremity.

During the fellowship, fellows will learn advanced surgical techniques, including microsurgery, nerve reconstruction, tendon repair, and joint replacement. They will also have the opportunity to work with patients who require specialized care, such as those with brachial plexus injuries, peripheral nerve disorders, and complex hand trauma.

Upon completion of the Surgery of the Hand Fellowship, surgeons will be well-prepared to pursue a career as a hand surgeon, with specialized expertise in the comprehensive care of hand and upper extremity conditions. They will be skilled in delivering compassionate, patient-centered care and will be equipped to make complex decisions in the management of hand and upper extremity disorders.
