* Dr. Debra Parisi, board certified hand surgeon, is offering fast, efficient evaluation of non-emergency hand, wrist and elbow conditions.

If you have pain in your hand, wrist, forearm or elbow due to overuse or a recent injury, call 212.844.6770 for an appointment. Most patients can be seen within a week. Some same day appointments are available.

The hand is often at risk in sports or certain professions, and proper function of the hand and wrist is essential for many of the simplest tasks in your everyday life-such as turning a doorknob, tying your shoes or writing a note. Whether as a result of trauma or wear and tear, injuries to the hand or wrist require an expert hand surgeon to repair its delicate framework and restore its functional mobility.

The hand surgeons at Beth Israel in Manhattan, New York City have one of the largest and busiest hand surgery practices in the country, with more than 1,500 surgeries performed annually, making it a key component of our orthopedics department. Our nationally renowned hand surgeons treat professional and amateur athletes as well as individuals from all walks of life, with patients from the Manhattan / New York City area and across the country.

The Academic Perspective
With the Albert Einstein Hand Fellowship at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, the division embraces an important teaching function. The fact that our hand surgery experts teach future hand surgeons means they are current with the latest clinical and research advances.


Breadth and depth
Our hand surgeons repair complex problems at every age. Some highlights of our hand surgeons' expertise include treatment of:

  • Scleroderma. This autoimmune disease affects the body's elastic tissues, causing abnormal tightening of the skin, muscles and blood vessels. Mount Sinai Beth Israel has been at the forefront of surgical approaches to this disease, including the repair of finger contractures and the alteration of vessels that have been affected.
  • Arthritis. When non-surgical medical care has been optimized, both rheumatoid lupus and osteoarthritic patients can find relief from deformity and pain through the division's surgical interventions.
  • Trauma. Bone fractures, wrist dislocations, cut blood vessels, nerves and tendons, and major injuries from accidents are treated with the miracles of microsurgery and other state-of-the-art techniques.
  • Birth defects. A wide range of congenital anomalies — from missing or attached digits to abnormal tendons — can be surgically corrected.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This repetitive motion injury, which can cause pain, numbness or tingling in your thumb and/or fingers, is caused by nerve compression at the base of the palm. Our surgeons are experts at relieving the symptoms of this condition.

In addition to our nationally renowned hand surgeons, the division offers on-site hand therapists who work with patients during recovery. With the finest post-operative care standards, Beth Israel's hand surgeons are getting hands working again better and faster than ever before.
