Dr. Neal B Zimmerman 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.

Severely broke and dislocated 3 bones in my wrist. Got in to see Dr. Zimmerman the next day and had surgery, installing a plate and some pins. Dr. Zimmerman is extremely bright, understanding and explained things so I could easily understand the damage and the proposed solution. The results of his surgery were great. The office staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The follow up visits further supported my high regard for him.
Patient and kind, informative and reassuring, Dr. Z's personable manner easily inspires confidence. He knows what he's doing, yet he's not the slightest bit arrogant about it. Dr. Z graciously took the time I needed to explain what was happening to my hand as it healed and what to expect in the near future. I was pleasantly surprised his office visit price was affordable! This is a doctor who really cares about his patients and it comes through. Thank you, Dr. Zimmerman!
I got injured on the job. The doctor my work sent me to released me to work full duty after 2 weeks of light duty. My pain level was the same so my doctor sent me to a specialist (Dr. Zimmerman). He looked at my X-rays for five seconds before correctly diagnosing my problem, which was a torn ligament. He had to do surgery on my wrist. He explained everything in great detail. He never seemed rushed. He was available via telephone when I called. I will continue to go to him. He's also seen and is currently seeing my son.
Front office staff was great. Very polite & professional. Saw Dr. Zimmerman for consultation for an old hand injury. Had previously seen a surgeon that recommended a ligament reconstruction, my insurance changed & I had to find someone in MD. Dr. Zimmerman seemed rushed & inattentive, told me I was 'no spring chicken' (I'm 42!) & that he wouldn't do a reconstruction b/c it would take too long. He recommended a joint fusion instead. When he saw that I was frustrated by his recommendation, he looked @ his watch & said he had another pt. I left in tears, as I had just driven over an hour to his Lutherville office for a 10 min appointment and accomplished nothing. I will be scheduling w/ another Dr. in the practice.
