Why Choose a Hand Surgeon?

Problems with the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder require specialized care because of the intricate network of blood vessels and nerves, as well as the delicate balance of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. 

A qualified hand surgeon has received a full year of specialized training above and beyond that of orthopedic surgery, cosmetic surgery, or general surgery. Hand surgeons are eligible for membership in the American Society for Surgery of the Hand after successfully completing additional training and passing the rigorous hand certification examination. 

Feel confident that Dr. Steve Meadows has the credentials and experience you can trust. He is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with advanced fellowship training in hand and upper extremity surgery. Dr. Meadows received his fellowship training in hand and upper extremity surgery at the Hand Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. The Center is renowned for its pioneering efforts in tendon surgery and techniques of hand rehabilitation. 

Dr. Meadows is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. Respected as a foremost authority in hand and upper extremity conditions, Dr. Meadows provides expert witness testimony for court cases hundreds of times each year.
