Hand Procedures

                                  Hand

Although references to surgery of the hand date back to Hippocrates in ancient Greece, the dedicated specialty of hand surgery is relatively young. The second World War is thought to be the major driving event for the development of hand surgery as a separate  surgical discipline. Battle-induced injuries to bones, joints, nerves and arteries required expertise from several surgical disciplines. Today hand surgery remains a convergence of general, plastic and orthopedic surgery. With residencies in general surgery, plastic surgery and an orthopedic hand surgery fellowship, Dr. Kote is well versed in this intricate field.  Below you will find links to specific information on some of the most common conditions.
