Our Doctors

Care and Treatment


Our team of hand and upper limb specialists ranks among the most experienced in the country. The physicians you meet at the Redwood City clinic are the same ones who practice at Stanford Health Care in Palo Alto. Depending on the type and complexity of care required, surgeries may be scheduled to take place at the Outpatient Surgery Center in Redwood City, Ambulatory Surgery Center in Palo Alto, or Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto.

When you visit the clinic, you will meet clinic assistants, medical assistants, nurse practitioners and physicians who are committed to providing the best possible patient care. Our goal is to make you feel welcome at our clinic from your very first visit. While we specialize in the hand and upper limb, we treat the whole person. We encourage you to get to know us.

About our clinic

  • Our staff will help you choose the physician or service that best fits your needs.
  • We offer treatments for problems extending from the shoulder to the fingertips.
  • Your doctors and clinical staff are here to listen to your concerns and questions.
  • Our physicians treat hand or upper limb conditions that are present at birth (congenital) or occur after birth (acquired). 

Specializing in surgical and non-surgical solutions

At the Hand and Upper Limb Center, we care for patients in all age groups, ranging from newborns to the eldest seniors.

Treating the hand and upper limb means that we tend to the fingertips, the shoulder, and everything in between. The breadth of our care includes: trauma (fractures and sprains, tendon injury, nerve injury); chronic disorders (carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, tendinitis); arthritis (including inflammatory, age-related, and trauma-related); and congenital anomalies such as extra fingers or absence of fingers.

In many cases, disorders of the hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, arm, and shoulder may be treated with non-surgical approaches, including rest, alternation of activity, splinting, and therapy. As hand surgeons, we work closely with hand, occupational, and physical therapists to provide the best comprehensive treatment to meet your needs. We also work closely with our colleagues in other specialties, such as Rheumatology, Plastic Surgery, and other Orthopaedic subspecialties, maximizing treatment of diseases and conditions that affect the body beyond the hand and upper limb.
