Dr. Zimmerman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Zimmerman "Dr. Zimmerman earned his M.D. from Johns Hopkins and completed Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at Harvard, where he served as the Chief Orthopaedic Resident at Massachusetts General Hospital. He specializes in conditions of the entire upper limb, from shoulder to fingertip and treats patient of all ages. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zimmerman "Care is individualized to each patient.  Whenever possible, I recommend nonsurgical options first.  When surgery is an option, I discuss why it might help you, what is likely to happen without surgery and exactly what surgery and recovery would entail.  I never pressure patients into surgery and I do my best to give you the information you need to make whatever decision is right for you.  "

I "tolerated" severe Rheumatoid Arthritis nodules for more than ten years. Dr. Zimmerman changed my day to day life and makes me ask, "Why did I wait so long for surgery?!". My advice, don't wait. Dr. Zimmerman, staff & facility are excellent.

Doctor Zimmerman operated on my hand after a severe wood shop accident. His expertise saved all my fingers except for one that was too damaged to save. He has a great personality and carefully explained things to me as my healing progressed. I would highly recommend Dr. Zimmerman.
