Advanced Diagnostics, Treatment, Surgery and Therapy for Patients with Injuries to the Hand, Wrist, Arm, Elbow and Shoulder

Setting the standard for care of the Hand, Wrist, Arm, Elbow, and Shoulder

We diagnose, treat, repair and manage the complete rehabilitation of injuries to the hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder. Patients, from elite athletes and active adults to children and disabled seniors, with unique care requirements turn to the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center for expert care.

We continue to improve techniques and develop innovative protocols for the treatment of injured and diseased hands. Our physicians have developed a number of innovations now used by surgeons throughout the world. Research remains an important part of our mission.

By combining dedication to research, education, training, high levels of patient satisfaction and quality outcomes, the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center continues to lead the way to recovery for their patients. Recognized as one of the world’s leading centers for hand to shoulder care, the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center is also extraordinarily convenient to patients in Eastern Pennsylvania, south Jersey & the Jersey shore.
