What is the key difference between a hand surgeon and an orthopedic surgeon?

An orthopedic surgeon specializes in treating conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, including any muscles, tendons, joints, and bones in the affected area. They may choose to practice general orthopedics, or they may choose to streamline their practice and only focus on a certain area of the body.

Hand surgeons are medical specialists that focus on alleviating pain and restoring functionality to hand and upper extremity via surgical and/or non-surgical intervention. Additionally, they often specialize in microsurgeries that are specific to the hand.

The Florida Hand Center provides access to two of the most renowned and experienced hand surgeons in the business.

That’s why he’s dedicated his life to helping patients get the relief they deserve.

Dr. Olarte, is a highly respected hand surgeon who changes lives by applying his exceptional expertise and passion towards the patients in his care. He is both a Board-Certified Hand Surgeon and Board Certified General Surgeon with a speciality in microsurgery. He received his M.D. from the esteemed Ponce School of Medicine and carries with him a wealth of knowledge that makes him a leader in his field.
