Dr. Hammert's clinical practice includes all aspects of hand and wrist surgery as well as peripheral nerve surgery and microsurgery. He has a special expertise in surgical treatment of pediatric hand conditions, reconstructive surgery for arthritic and traumatic disorders of the hand and wrist, as well as upper extremity nerve disorders.
Dr. Hammert earned his medical degree at Medical College of Pennsylvania. He has also completed a Plastic Surgery Residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and a Fellowship in Hand and Microsurgery at the Hand Center of Western New York. Dr. Hammert has published numerous articles and book chapters and presented his research at regional and national meetings. He is board certified in plastic surgery, and has a Certificate of Added Qualification for Surgery of the Hand. Dr. Hammert is a Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Plastic Surgery, and Chief of the Hand and Wrist Division at UR Medicine.

If surgery is required, Dr. Hammert uses the convenient and efficient Clinton Crossings Procedure Rooms for outpatient surgical procedures when possible. The Procedure Room team of nurses and technicians that assist him are experts in the care of patients undergoing outpatient procedures. Dr. Hammert also works closely with our specially trained hand and upper extremity therapists in the Hand Rehabilitation program to direct your post-surgical care and to ensure a fast and successful recovery. When bracing is ordered by Dr. Hammert, our hand therapists are prepared to fashion custom splints on site the same day as your appointment.
