Dr. Neal C. Chen brings a wide breadth of expertise to his practice, from advanced arthroscopy to complex extremity reconstruction. He has a balanced approach towards novel technologies and evidence-based medicine.
In 2002, Dr. Chen's father was in an accident, which broke both his arms and legs. At Mass General, Dr. Jesse Jupiter cared for his father's complex elbow and forearm fractures. As a result of his care, his father had an exceptional result. From this experience and the tutelage of Dr. Jupiter, Dr. Chen developed an interest in hand and upper extremity surgery.
Dr. Chen received his BS in Biological Sciences at Stanford University and his MD from Yale University. He completed residency at the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program, the Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship at Mass General and the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Fellowship at Hospital for Special Surgery.
He returned to Mass General after six years of both academic and private practice. He was previously a Sports Medicine Attending at the University of Michigan and subsequently was a partner at the Philadelphia Hand Center, P.C. while serving as an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. As a fellow in New York, Dr. Chen was an assistant team physician for the New York Mets. In Ann Arbor, he served as a consultant to University of Michigan Athletics, a consultant to USA Hockey and team physician for Eastern Michigan University.
He has received a prestigious Basic Science Grant from the American Society for Surgery of the Hand/American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand. He has research sponsored by the AO Foundation for the study of shoulder fractures.
Dr. Chen has a clinical practice that encompasses complex problems of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. He performs shoulder and elbow replacement, tendon transfers, arthroscopy of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist, and repair of malaligned or unhealed fractures.
After a three-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 31st annual Richard J. Smith Memorial Lectureship and the 8th Annual Jesse Jupiter International Forum brought surgeons from around the globe to Boston for in-person presentations, roundtable conversations and networking.
Numbness and tingling of the fingers and hands are often related to common nerve compressions. Dr. Neal Chen discusses the common problems, treatment for mild symptoms, and when to see a provider for medical care.
Mientras trabajaba, David se lesionó gravemente la mano derecha, cortándose los tendones del dorso. En busca de una solución, David abordó un vuelo de dos horas de las Bermudas a Boston para reunirse con un equipo de médicos de Mass General.
من جانبه قال ديفيد: "عندما أخبرني أطبائي بمدى خطورة الإصابة، أُصبتُ بانهيار وبكيت. لو انتشر الالتهاب أكثر، كانوا سيبترون يدي وهو أمر كان سيمثل مصيبة لي باعتباري محبًا لرياضة التاي تشي وعملي صانعًا للوحات."
