Dr. Charlotte Shum has the following 2 specialties
- Surgery of the Hand
Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.
- Orthopaedic Surgery
- Knee Osteoarthritis
- Hip Osteoarthritis
- Osteoarthritis (Hand and Wrist)

Dr. Shum inserted a titanium plate to treat my distal radial fracture. This is a very common operation. Following surgery she said that a bone had escaped from the plate. She wanted to operate to fix the problem and there would be a second surgery to fuse bones. She was defensive. She showed little interest in searching literature for other such cases. Because of her surgery, I needed more surgery. I had surgery with a different physician at a different hospital. He is known for fixing unsucessful surgeries.
Dr. Shum prescribed a painkiller for me that created an ulcer. When I tried to speak to Dr. Shum about the rather horrible symptoms I was having, I could get neither her nor her nurse to talk to me about it. Eventually, I ended up in the E.R. where the ulcer was accurately diagnosed. Post diagnosis, I still could not get Dr. Shum to help me obtain the necessary follow-up with a G.I. specialist. It took 6 months to recover from the original Rx problems, and throughout Dr. Shum never cared to personally return a call or follow up.
