At Neaman Hand Surgery, we believe in providing our patients with the best possible care. This is why we have hired certified hand therapists to work alongside one of our board-certified hand surgeons to achieve a higher level of hand therapy care.
What is a Hand Therapist?
A hand therapist is a nationally registered occupational therapist (OT) or physical therapist (PT) who has undergone continued education and clinical experience to become proficient in the treatment of pathological upper quadrant conditions. A hand specialist may also have advanced certification as a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT), which requires a minimum of three years of clinical experience, the successful passing of an examination of advanced skills and theory in upper extremity rehab, and the meeting of mandated criteria.
At Neaman Hand Surgery, we are proud to employ two Certified Hand Therapists, Cris Alba and Liz Vargo.
Schedule a Consultation
Having a hand therapist on site allows for daily communication between the surgeon, therapist, and patient regarding the patient’s diagnosis, surgical procedures (if any), rehabilitation progress, and any concerns they may have. To schedule a consultation with one of our Certified Hand Therapists (CHTs) Cris Alba or Liz Vargo, please contact Neaman Hand Surgery today.
