Coastal Orthopedics Welcomes Dr. Jennifer Hoffman, Hand and Upper Extremity Specialist
Coastal Orthopedics is excited to welcome Dr. Jennifer Hoffman to our team of surgeons. Dr. Hoffman is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in problems of the hand, wrist and elbow. She has spent the past several years in practice at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, where in addition to her busy surgical practice, she served as a clinical instructor for the Tufts/New England Baptist Hospital Orthopedics Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship program. Dr. Hoffman is excited to join the Coastal Orthopedics Team and bring her expertise to the North Shore area. She performs carpal tunnel surgery, treatment of both simple and complex traumatic injuries of the fingers, wrist, hand, and elbow, work and sports-related conditions, and joint replacement, arthroscopy and reconstruction of the upper extremity. Dr. Hoffman will begin accepting new patients in May 2022.
Some of the conditions Dr. Hoffman treats are:
Distal biceps rupture
Injuries of the fingers, hand, wrist, elbow
Joint replacement of the fingers/hand
Arthroscopy of the wrist/elbow
Dr. Hoffman is also experienced in fracture treatment of the upper extremity, especially distal radius, elbow and hand fractures.
She has spent the last fifteen years in Boston treating a variety of upper extremity conditions in patients ranging from infancy to adulthood. In addition to caring for her patients, Dr. Hoffman has also spent time teaching both orthopedic residents and hand fellowship candidates in the clinical and surgical treatment of a full spectrum of upper extremity disorders of all ages. She believes that it is important for her patients to understand their conditions and to be an active participant in their medical decisions. She also feels that treating the patient as a whole is necessary to help determine which treatment is appropriate for each patient.
When Dr. Hoffman is not seeing patients, she enjoys ballroom dancing, reading mysteries, and trying out new restaurants with her friends.
