The health and function of our hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulders are essential in our daily lives and should be treated with the most specialized care available when an injury occurs. Our physicians are committed to providing expert care for all conditions and injuries of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder including congenital anomalies, sports injuries, pediatric injuries and conditions, and work-related injuries. Our expert physicians are here to provide you with the care, compassion, and personal attention you need to return to your daily life with the highest function possible.

What does fellowship-trained mean?

All physicians at Hand to Shoulder Center of Wisconsin have completed accredited fellowships beyond the orthopedic residency.  These highly competitive fellowship programs provide an additional year of concentrated, specialized training in the treatment of hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder, and gives the physician the opportunity to work closely with an internationally-recognized leader in their field.  Following the fellowship training, the physicians complete the exam to receive a Subspecialty Certification in Surgery of the Hand and become eligible for membership in the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. Completion of a hand and upper extremity fellowship indicates that they all have demonstrated an extra level of commitment, dedication, and proficiency in their field.
