    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Daniel Mass, MD, is a highly regarded expert in orthopaedic surgery of the hand and upper extremities. He has a special interest in the research and treatment of flexor tendon injuries (injuries to the muscles that allow the fingers to bend and flex), and he also studies the mechanics of the hand, wrist, and elbow.

    A popular speaker, Dr. Mass has given numerous presentations on hand surgery to medical audiences around the world. In addition, he has written book chapters on flexor tendon injuries and hand and wrist surgery. He has contributed to many peer-reviewed articles on these and other orthopaedic topics.
