The hand is a unique area of the human body because the anatomy is so tightly confined. In no other region are bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels so intimately related.
A hand surgeon is trained to deal with all of these delicate structures. While the purview of the lower extremity is shared among orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and wound care specialists, a hand surgeon has mastery of all of these therapeutic modalities — both for hard and soft tissues of the hand.
An orthopedic or plastic surgeon gains this expertise during a year-long fellowship. After training in plastic surgery, Dr. Michael Pickart spent a full year at the Indiana Hand Center, which is a world-renowned orthopedic hand program.
