Tour of The Curtis National Hand Center at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital


This video tour provides viewers a look inside The Curtis National Hand Center at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

Founded by Dr. Raymond Curtis in 1975, The Curtis National Hand Center has grown to be the largest hand center in the world with 14 surgeons, a prominent fellowship program, a complete research department, and association with the largest hand rehabilitation center in the nation.

The Center cares for patients from all over the country and many international patients who seek treatment for a wide variety of problems and injuries that affect the function of the hand and upper extremity.

The same level of commitment to serving patients is reflected in the Center’s dedication to teaching the future generations of leaders in our field. Established in 1978, our hand fellowship program is the most prestigious and respected in the country. Each year, an elite class of physicians who have completed their primary training in orthopedic, plastic, or general surgery, receives world-class training with the opportunity to treat challenging cases, perform cutting-edge research, and collaborate with faculty and alumni.

The Center also serves as the training center for residents and medical students from Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, MedStar Union Memorial, and Walter Reed Army Hospital, and entertains visitors from all over the world.

In addition, the Center places a premium on the medical education of colleagues and the public, hosting a lecture series that ensures we give back to our specialty and advance the surgical sciences.
