Dr. Halim's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Halim "After receiving my degree in Biology from Yale University in 2006, I attended medical school at USC. I graduated in 2010 with Dean's Recognition and as a member of AOA. I then returned to Yale for my Orthopaedic Surgery Residency. I earned the highest recognition for my research at Yale, focused on using ultrasounds to evaluate hand and upper extremity infections. I then spent a year honing my skills as a hand surgeon at Brown University. I currently work at Yale as an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, specializing in the hand and upper extremity. My research interests include scaphoid nonunions, upper extremity infections, and the practice of efficient medicine in Orthopaedic Hand surgery. I remain committed to academic medicine as a way to educate future surgeons and to contribute to research and progress in my field."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Halim "The hand is the most important way in which we interact with the world. We use our hands to carry out our work and our hobbies. We hold our children and the hands of our friends and loved ones. My goal is to improve the function of your hand and wrist, no matter what the problem, whether you have an injured tendon, a crushed finger, a fractured wrist, or a joint that is worn out and arthritic from years of hard work. I treat every patient with care to the individual needs, lifestyle, and goals."
