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.
Physical therapy may include a regimen of exercise, tissue
manipulation, and other treatments focused on maximizing function in
specific body parts to help relieve pain. Occupational therapy focuses
on a range of techniques to enable patients to return to work or a
normal daily routine.
Injuries or conditions of the hand or wrist may need specialized
splinting in conjunction with physical therapy to help reduce swelling
and pain, restore strength, endurance, coordination, movement, and
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 (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics)
