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 function.

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 and questions, visit Referring Physicians.
