Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

Hand and Upper Extremity

Patients at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital receive care from pediatric orthopaedic surgeons specially trained in treating hand disorders and injuries.
 

The hand surgery specialists at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital provide care for infants, children and teens with complex injuries and congenital or acquired deformities. As one of a limited number of pediatric hand specialty programs in Florida, we work to improve hand function and enhance quality of life for our patients.

Treating children with hand and upper extremity disorders is often more complex than treating adults. Children’s hands contain all the same hundreds of ligaments and dozens of bones, nerves, arteries and muscles that adults’ do, and their hands are still growing, making experienced pediatric orthopaedic care important for young patients.

At Johns Hopkins All Children’s, your child will receive expert care from the physicians with Children's Orthopaedic and Scoliosis Surgery Associates, L.L.P. (COSSA). Board-certified orthopaedic surgeons Lee Phillips, M.D., and Drew Warnick, M.D., are both fellowship-trained in treatment of hand disorders—Dr. Phillips in both general pediatric orthopaedic surgery and pediatric hand and upper extremity surgery, and Dr. Warnick in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgical treatment of elbow and shoulder sports injuries.

The orthopaedic team takes a multidisciplinary approach to care, coordinating directly with other specialists at Johns Hopkins All Children’s, such as musculoskeletal radiology, plastic surgery and rehabilitation services, depending on your child’s individual treatment plan and care needs.
