If you are experiencing pain with your hands, wrists, arms, elbows or shoulders related to arthritis, fractures, dislocations, congenital defects, burns, nerve and tendon damage, crush injuries, amputations, a trauma or pain from repetitive wear and tear, the best place for your care is Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center (formerly The Philadelphia Hand Center) at Jefferson. 

Our team of orthopedic specialists and certified hand therapists will work with you with one goal in mind: returning you to work, home, sports or leisure activities with the highest level of functionality possible.

Board-Certified Surgeons in Orthopedic Surgery

Our surgeons are experts in small joint arthroscopy; microsurgery; complex reconstructive surgery following trauma; surgery for many different types of arthritis including small joint, wrist, elbow and shoulder replacements; and surgery for routine conditions of the hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis. Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center physicians have developed a number of innovations for the treatment of injuries and diseases, now used by surgeons throughout the world.

Each specialist is board certified/eligible in orthopedic surgery, with additional qualifications in surgery of the hand; many are also microsurgeons. To date, we have performed the most total wrist replacements in the Philadelphia region.

Our Approach to Diagnosis & Treatment of Conditions of the Hand

With Jefferson's high-field extremity MRI – one of only a handful in the nation – you rest comfortably in a chair while only your arm is enclosed during the imaging study. This MRI is ideal for children, athletes and claustrophobic patients.

We offer several convenient office locations including Center City Philadelphia as well as offices throughout the Delaware Valley, including Montgomery County, Delaware County, Chester County and Bucks County, and in South Jersey.

Every procedure – from trigger finger and carpal tunnel release to nerve transfers, wrist arthroscopies and minimally invasive thumb base osteoarthritis surgery – is performed by Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center's and South Jersey Hand Center's world-renowned specialists in operating rooms specially equipped with the latest technology for procedures of the hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder.

Before surgery, patients arrive at the waiting/changing room. Afterwards, patients are monitored in the postoperative areas until they are cleared to go home. The inpatients will be taken to their rooms, where they may begin to receive physical or occupational therapy.
