Fellowship director Roger Cornwall, MD, is nationally known for his expertise in treating conditions that affect the pediatric hand and upper extremities, including complex trauma and congenital deformities. He not only serves as director for the Hand Fellowship but also serves as co-director of the Hand and Upper Extremity Center, which he opened in 2009.
