Specialties

Dr. Steven A Fern 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.

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    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.

Above and beyond hand plastic surgeon

We were so fortunate that Dr. Fern came to my 4 year old's care after a car door accident broke her finger. The first ER we visited said it was a simple fracture but we revisited a different ER after the bleeding did not stop two days later. Another surgeon there said to come to his office on Monday without seeing us., but Dr. Fern happened to be at the hospital and came into the room without even being on call. He got right to work and let us know our bleeding concerns were absolutely valid. Our daughter was bleeding so much because her finger fracture was completely open and exposed under her fingernail. Without his immediate care, she could have suffered an infection and at the very least, her nail would not have grown back properly. He was calm, reassuring and exact during the procedure. Two days later my daughter played with her gauze loosening the dressing and he called back immediately after I called his answering service. He texted with me while I sent pictures of the wound and bought the proper bandaid to redress it. He even offered to meet me at the hospital right away if i needed any assistance with her gauze. We are so fortunate he came to her rescue and we are on the road to recovery. I have confidence it will heal properly and that she is in good hands. I look forward to following up with him later in the week.

Excellent for Botox!!

I didn't know how to explain what I wanted but Dr. Fern did an amazing job with the Botox. He took time to figure out what I wanted and knew exactly what I needed. I highly recommend him for any plastic surgery procedures.

gifted hand surgeon

I was very fortunate to have Dr. Fern re-construct my left hand after a gruesome table saw accident involving three of my fingers.5 hours and over 100 stitches later, I was literally in awe of his talent. THANK YOU Dr. Fern.

Five Stars

Ive been going to Dr. Fern for years. I even brought my son to him when he impaled his chin at 18 months old. Hes a very caring and confident surgeon, who Ive found to be professional and knowledgeable in varying circumstances. Hes detail-oriented, takes pride in the work he does, and is well regarded among his peers.
