"For my PhD, I did research at Harvard Medical School in Boston for a few years. From this research my special interest in the "post-traumatic" abnormalities of the hand and wrist arose; disorders due to a fracture of the hand or wrist. I specialize in nerve, tendon and ligament injuries of the hand and wrist as well as in arthroscopic treatment techniques.
