  • 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.

  • Plastic Surgery

    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.

My experience

Dr. Chang came to our rescue when we were in a really bad off place with our 15 month old daughter who had terrible Accident where her fingers were torn off. Dr. Chang and his team rebuilt her tendons, nerves and bone and has given her a second lease on using that hand. We are still under his care and are very grateful for his expertise and medical interventions with our daughter.

Jim saved my hand and finger. I had a horrible finger fracture from a softball injury. Jim performed a unique and experitmental surgery that enabled me to keep full functionality and continue to enjoy sporting activities such as golf, softball and volleyball. If it hadn't been for him...my finger would have been fused into a single position and I'd no longer be able to participate in sporting activities... THANK YOU JIM!
