Crozer Health/Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center Partnership Welcomes Matthew Wilson, M.D.
The Crozer Health /Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center Partnership welcomes Matthew Wilson, M.D. to its team of fellowship-trained hand surgeons. Wilson sees patients at offices located in Havertown (2010 West Chester Pike, Suite 330) and Glen Mills (500 Evergreen Drive, Suite 10). He performs surgical procedures at the Crozer Health Surgery Center at Haverford and the Crozer Health Surgery Center at Brinton Lake.
Wilson earned his medical degree from the University of Kansas in Kansas City, KS and completed his fellowship training at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. He provides expert orthopedic hand and wrist care to patients of all ages and is a member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Wilson partners with his patients not only as their physician but as their teacher. He believes that knowledge is power and that an educated patient will participate in the decision-making process – resulting in improved function and quality of life. It’s a role he takes seriously: Wilson serves as adjunct professor at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and has taught middle school math and science to students in Camden, NJ as part of the Teach for America Corps. The latter experience allowed him to work with some of America’s most disadvantaged students and promote educational equity in an underserved community.
Since its inception in 2012, the Crozer Health /Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center Partnership joined together the renowned hand specialists of Crozer Health with the experts of the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center (PHSC). PHSC is known throughout the region and around the world as the preeminent resource for the latest advances and knowledge in diagnosing and treating injuries, diseases and disorders of the hand and upper extremity. PHSC’s team of fellowship-trained physicians leads the way in developing and providing intricate limb-saving techniques and procedures that restore function and quality of life. They are routinely sought out for their expertise: They act as reviewers for peer-reviewed publications, they fellowship-train the next generation of hand specialists, and they host the largest hand surgery/hand therapy meeting in the world each year in Philadelphia.
