The Philadelphia Hand Center Adds Two New Doctors to Its Team of Experts

Drs. Richard J. Tosti and Adam B. Strohl Enhance Offerings With Specialties of Traumatic and Post-Traumatic Reconstruction and Plastic Surgery

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA --(Marketwired - September 08, 2016) - The Philadelphia Hand Center (PHC), recognized as one of the world's leading centers for hand-to-shoulder care, has once again expanded with the addition of two new physicians.

Drs. Richard J. Tosti and Adam B. Strohl enhance an already impressive roster of hand-to-shoulder physicians at PHC. The combined team of professionals utilizes the latest, most advanced techniques to meet and exceed their patients' needs. In a practice already staffed with skilled clinical and academic professors, researchers, leaders, and innovators, Tosti and Strohl have their own specialties to add to the mix.

Tosti, a fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon, has expertise in traumatic and post-traumatic hand-to-shoulder reconstruction, which includes the repair of fractures, tendons, nerves, and ligaments. He performs microsurgical procedures including limb salvage surgery, replantation of fingers, hands, and arms, toe-to-thumb transfers, and free tissue transfers. When asked about his approach to care, Tosti notes "regardless of the goal -- a sport, event, career, leisure, art, or hobby -- it is important for my patients to know that their goal is now my goal, too."

Strohl, PHC's first plastic surgery-trained hand and upper extremity surgeon is also fellowship trained and will care for patients with various upper extremity problems, including fractures, arthritis, neuropathies, cancer, tendinitis, traumatic injuries, amputations, burns, and deformities. Additionally, Strohl will assess and address cosmetic deformity and aesthetic needs, offering state-of-the-art skills including scar revision and hand rejuvenation. Strohl says of his approach, "We treat the whole patient, not just the hole in the patient."

Impressive educational backgrounds are also notable with these two experts. Tosti is an alumnus of Pennsylvania State University and Temple University School of Medicine, with residence training at Temple University Hospital and Shriners Hospital for Children, as well as a fellowship at Harvard Medical School's Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital. Strohl is an alumnus of Washington University, Washington University School of Medicine, and UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, with residence training at Mount Sinai Hospital. He is also one of the few plastic surgeons to complete an Orthopaedic Fellowship in Hand, Upper Extremity, and Microsurgery at The Philadelphia Hand Center and Thomas Jefferson University.

By combining dedication to research, education, training, patient satisfaction and quality outcomes, PHC continues to lead the way to quick recovery for their patients. "Drs. Tosti and Strohl will fit in very well with our team," noted Andrew Cooney, PHC's executive director. "It is exciting to add these doctors to our talented group of hand-to-shoulder experts who offer the highest quality and value in patient care."

PHC has an established network of state-of-the-art locations throughout Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Tosti will see patients in PHC's Wilkes Barre and Langhorne/Oxford Valley offices. Strohl will see patients in PHC's Center City Philadelphia, South Philadelphia, and Havertown offices.
