Dr. Harris Gellman has the following 3 specialties
- Orthopaedic Surgery of the Hand
- 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.

As a physician, I feel more than qualified to render an opinion about Dr. Gellman and the care he provided me. I underwent cubital tunnel release surgery under the care of Dr. Gellman on 10/25/2017. His outstanding reputation within the medical community is both true and well deserved. My own surgery has led to significant improvement in less than 24 hours and with significantly less pain than I expected. I highly recommend him for his medical knowledge, surgical expertise, and bedside manner. Hopefully I will not require any future surgery, but if I do, I will return to his care without any hesitation.
Waited two hours past my appt time (the office does encourage you to call to see how far behind he is running), and was then told I must have a xray done in the office before Dr. Gellman would see me. I explained that #1)My insurance doesn't pay for xrays unless they are done in a Broward Health facility, and 2) His fee of $25.00 is $15.00 MORE than the co-pay I would pay under my plan and 3) what I am coming in for may not NEED an xray. After speaking to Dr. Gellman the young lady informed me he would not see me without an xray. I got my $20.00 co-pay back and left. Had the office informed me of this policy I never would have made an appointment. One star is one too many.
I am sorry that the patient doesn't understand that an X-ray is as important to an Orthopedic Hand Surgeon as an EKG is to a Cardiologist. I regularly find 12-15 diagnosed bone tumors each year. Having X-rays done at the time of the visit saves the patients a second trip to the radiologist. Most commonly we get special views that are not routinely done as part of the standard x-ray series. If we are informed that cost is an issue, accommodation can be made, Most importantly, the patient comes to the doctor for a diagnosis of their problem, if they knew what studies to do, and how to diagnose and treat their problem there would be no need to see a doctor.
