Scottish Rite Hospital was the first pediatric orthopedic hospital in the United States to employ full-time hand surgeons. Our Center for Excellence in Hand provides specialized care for children with hand and upper limb anomalies, as well as children who need complex reconstruction following trauma.
The hand center staff is dedicated to the well-being of the child, both physically and emotionally. Our goal is to help each child obtain maximum function, happiness and independence. Our approach is individualized to each child, as no two children are exactly the same.
We are fortunate to have vast experience in the treatment of many conditions that allow us to deliver the best care to each child. The hand surgeons at Scottish Rite Hospital are also actively involved in research and education, and train doctors from around the world in the treatment of a wide range of hand disorders.
