About Us

The Hand & Wrist Center

The Hand & Wrist Center was developed by Dr. Ross Nathan, Medical Director and orthopedic hand surgeon, in March 2006, and in January 2007, he was joined by Dr. George A. Macer, orthopedic hand surgeon.

The center is a new state-of-the-art facility, which incorporates amenities that maximize patient care and convenience. The office features the use of an electronic medical record (EMR) system, an Internet Café, a patient learning center, and an on-site, comprehensive hand therapy and rehabilitation center.

Our services include extensive consultations, instant digital imaging, diagnoses determination, treatment plan and alternative-options discussions, and therapeutic treatment.

In addition to contemporary amenities, the center has knowledgeable staff on-site to assist in optimizing medical care. Our dedicated occupational therapist has received special training and certification in Hand Therapy (Occupational Therapy). And our courteous front and back office staff is experienced and is committed to providing the most satisfactory experience possible.

With over 40 years combined specialty practice, our physicians offer prime expertise in orthopedic hand surgery, microvascular surgery, and upper-extremity* medicine. We are glad to be affiliated with major medical facilities including Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, Surgery Center of Long Beach, Community Hospital of Long Beach, St. Mary's Medical Center, Lakewood Regional Medical Center, and Los Alamitos Medical Center.
