At the Robert A. Chase Hand and Upper Limb Center, we specialize in
the care of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Our team includes
surgeons from Orthopaedic Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive
Surgery, as well as a dedicated clinical support staff.
Your doctors and clinical staff are here to listen to your concerns
and questions. They are your best starting place when you want to
learn more about a condition or treatment. The information on our
Treatments page on this site complements the advice you get from your doctor.
We encourage our patients to educate themselves. The Web sites below
can provide you with additional information.
Scleroderma seriously restricted blood flow to Melissa Warde’s fingers. Delicate microsurgery by a Stanford microvascular surgeon allowed her to avoid amputation.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
We share your goal of providing the best possible care and
coordination of care for your patients. While patients are welcome to
contact our clinic directly, we also encourage communication between
our surgeons and referring physicians. Throughout and after their
treatment at Stanford, it is important that patients maintain close
contact with their primary care and referring physicians.
Stanford Health Care provides comprehensive services
to refer and track patients, as well as the latest information and
news for physicians and office staff. For help with all referral needs
