The Hand and Orthopedic Upper Extremity Program, located within the Orthopedic Center at Boston Children's Hospital, provides comprehensive care to infants, children and adolescents with congenital, neuromuscular, sports-related, oncologic and traumatic/ post-traumatic conditions of the upper extremity. 

Our program is also committed to improving clinical care through continued clinical and basic science research. Along with its leadership in the field of brachial plexus birth palsy, our multidisciplinary team studies the treatment of a wide variety of upper limb conditions, including:

   •    surgical correction of forearm deformity following previous fracture
   •    ligament and/or cartilage injuries of the wrist
   •    post-traumatic stiffness and deformity of the elbow
   •    instability of the sternoclavicular and glenohumeral joints of the shoulder
   •    the use of microsurgical techniques in reconstructive surgery for congenital upper extremity differences
   •    the use of microsurgical techniques in reconstructive surgery following limb salvage for bone and soft-tissue tumors
   •    reconstruction of the congenitally deficient hand

Many of these investigations have resulted in national and international presentations or peer-reviewed medical publications, and all have increased our ability to provide the highest standard of patient care.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
