The formation of the new Hand Program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is an exciting benefit to our program. Dr. James E. Popp, co-director, is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopaedics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He specializes in surgery of the hand and upper extremity in adult and pediatric patients. His expertise includes common hand problems (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), wrist arthroscopy, joint replacement surgery for arthritis, and complex pediatric and adult reconstructive micro vascular surgery. The other co-director, Dr. Maya C. Spaeth, is with the Plastic Surgery Section at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This program enhances our ability to serve a broader patient population in the area of vascular surgery as well as pediatric congenital anomalies.
