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

We diagnose, treat, repair and manage the complete rehabilitation of all conditions and injuries to the hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder. Patients of all ages, from athletes to active adults to children and disabled seniors, turn to the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center for expert surgical, non-surgical and rehabilitative care for upper extremity injuries and conditions.

By combining dedication to research, education, training, high levels of patient satisfaction and quality outcomes, 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, Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center is also extraordinarily convenient to patients in Eastern Pennsylvania, Wilkes Barre and South Jersey with 18 state-of-the-art offices in the region.

A Heritage of Excellence 

In 1976, the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center held their first seminar for surgeons and therapists. This academically focused annual event is known as The Philadelphia Meeting. Celebrating over 40 years of success, it continues to attract professionals in hand surgery and rehabilitation from nearly every state and numerous foreign countries.
