Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
La Peer Health Systems is pleased to announce the launch of the Hand Surgery Center of Excellence, a sub-division of our Beverly Hills surgery center devoted to the comprehensive treatment of hand conditions and injuries.
“Our vision was to create a team of highly skilled physicians trained in the most advanced surgical techniques and dedicated to providing quality, individualized care for every patient,” explained Dr. Amir Tahernia, co-director and fellowship-trained hand surgeon. “The Hand Surgery Center of Excellence is the realization of this vision.”
The team of doctors at the Hand Surgery Center of Excellence consists of plastic reconstructive and orthopedic surgeons who are leaders in their respective fields. The center primarily focuses on the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger, conditions which can cause chronic, debilitating irritation in the hand and wrist. Other hand injuries treated at the Hand Surgery Center of Excellence include hand fractures and tendon and nerve damage.
In many cases, hand injuries can severely impact hand function unless repaired with surgery. At the Hand Surgery Center of Excellence, many of these life-changing treatments are performed through minimally invasive methods on an outpatient basis.
In an effort to promote high quality care throughout the medical community, the doctors at the Hand Surgery Center of Excellence donate a portion of their proceeds to Health Volunteers Overseas. This global non-profit organization works to improve healthcare in developing countries through the training and education of local health care providers.
“With support from the Hand Surgery Center of Excellence, Health Volunteers Overseas will continue to improve the quality and accessibility of health care for the neediest individuals around the world,” said Rajan Patel, MD, co-director of the Hand Surgery Center of Excellence.
The Hand Surgery Center of Excellence is headed up by its Medical Directors, Amir Tahernia, MD and Rajan Patel, MD. Dr. Tahernia is a fellowship-trained hand surgeon and double-board certified in general and plastic surgery. Dr. Patel is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with expertise in the treatment of hand injuries. The Hand Surgery Center of Excellence houses eight additional orthopedic surgeons who possess extensive training in sports related injuries, including injuries to the hand. All of our surgeons perform a variety of outpatient procedures at La Peer Health Systems.
