(From the February 2015 Issue of MedStat)
The Hand Program at Nationwide Children’s provides specialized care for children with congenital differences or traumatic injury of the hand and upper extremities. A joint collaboration between Plastic Surgery and Orthopedics, the multidisciplinary team is led by co-directors, Maya Spaeth, MD and James Popp, MD. The team provides comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans that provide the best outcomes in terms of mechanics, physical appearance, and a child’s confidence. This perspective helps to look beyond surgery and rehabilitation towards a goal of achieving optimal long-term health for every child. The team supports and cares for children and their families through evaluation, therapy, surgical and psychological interventions.
