What Our Fellows Say

Patrick Nathan

"This program is unique in that, as the only fellow, you have the ability to create an experience that is unique to your interests and goals. 

There is not a more well-rounded hand fellowship out there. I’ve become more efficient with microsurgical cases, have gained a better understanding in the management of ulnar-sided wrist pain/DRUJ, scaphoid fractures/non-union, and vascular disorders of the hand to name a few".
