      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Joseph says...

      It is very gratifying to restoring function of the hand, wrist and upper extremity as we all use our hands to eat, pray and hold our loved ones.  It is very inspiring and satisfying to me to assist people and regain their ability to perform these essential functions again. 

      I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon with Fellowship subspecialty training in Hand/Wrist surgery. 

      I have over 25 years experience in treating disorders of the upper extremity.  I am devoted to practicing the highest quality, state of the art medicine is a cost effective manner.

      Dr. Joseph's Care Philosophy

      All care that I deliver starts with making the most precise diagnosis possible and then outlining all potential therapeutic options. Returning patients quickly to their highest possible functional level with minimal discomfort is my highest priority. My care and treatment is based on active listening to the patient and their family.

      Dr. Joseph says...

      I completed an extra year of training, at the Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City, where I studied under Dr. Martin Posner and learned complex reconstruction techniques of the hand, wrist and upper extremity.
