While some physicians may think of Board Certification as just another complicated hoop they have to jump through in order to practice their craft, it can also be seen as a valuable way to demonstrate your commitment to the highest quality care, and to receive recognition for the many long years of work you have put into achieving expertise. Board certification sets you apart as a recognized specialist in the eyes of patients, hospitals, employers and insurers. Certification by an ABMS member Board is the gold standard for medical specialization in the US. Possession of a valid certificate reduces credentialing hassles, and is a required credential in many practice situations. This section will attempt to explain a bit about the background and process of ABOS certification.

Learn more about the specialized training and experience hand surgeons have, and how they can help you with a hand injury, disease or condition.
The hand is a unique area of the human body that is made up of bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. These elements must all be in good working order for the hand to function well.
The relationship between all these structures is delicate and refined. An injury or disease can affect any or all of these structures and impair the use of the hand.
