Explore the Hand Surgery Fellowship

Overview

The Mass General Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery fellowship provides a broad exposure from the shoulder to the fingertip. It is designed to provide a comprehensive experience in hand surgery and to prepare our fellows for independent practice at the completion of their training. Our fellowship affords a substantial amount of clinical responsibility and autonomy while also emphasizing the benefits of senior mentorship and teaching. Throughout the year, fellows are given the opportunity to manage myriad clinical problems under the direction of our faculty and to pursue academic endeavors such as clinical and basic science research. Our program is intended to attract mature, motivated surgical trainees who are interested in becoming leaders in hand surgery.

We offer three fellowship positions: two for surgeons trained in orthopaedic surgery and one for surgeons trained in plastic surgery. We believe that this provides a rich and diverse educational experience for our fellows.

Our fellowship’s strengths are high case volume and a comprehensive exposure to all aspects of elective, acute, and reconstructive hand surgery. We offer ample research opportunities and provide integration with our Orthopaedic Surgery, Plastic Surgery and Occupational Therapy Departments.

Our current faculty includes Dr. Neal Chen, Dr. Jesse Jupiter, Dr. Sang-Gil Lee, Dr. Chaitanya Mudgal, Dr. Curtis Cetrulo, Dr. Kyle Eberlin, Dr. Jonathan Winograd and Dr. Rohit Garg. Each practice incorporates all components of upper extremity surgery including arthroscopy, peripheral nerve surgery, microsurgery, and complex acute and late reconstructive surgery.
