Dr. Elkowitz is an orthopedic hand surgeon practicing in White Plains, NY and Manhattan. He received his medical degree from NYU School of Medicine. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases & his hand fellowship at the Curtis National Hand Center.
I am a recent & frequent patient of Dr. Elkowitz. Unfortunately, I have from my ancesotors in northern Europe, Dupitrends or curling of tthe fingers. Particularily, my pinkie finger on both hands are afflicted. Dr. Elkowitz has performed surgery 4 times, twice on each hand to allow me to have full funtionality or use of my hands.
Greets his own patients. Always on time. Clearly explains condtion & options
I can not comment on wait time as he had an emergency, so I left the office & they called me as soon as I go back & he saw me immediately. He is not a surgery happy doctor. In fact he tells you that he prefers not to operate, & only does so if the patient really wants it. He is seeing me for arthritis in my hands & has given me injections for it.
