Northwest Hospital’s Dr. Stacey Berner Recognized for Surgical Excellence

Stacey Berner, M.D., medical director of the Hand Center at Northwest Hospital, has been recognized as one of the country’s “great hand and upper extremity surgeons to know” by Becker’s Orthopedic and Spine Review.

He joins an elite group of 44 other surgeons on this list. He was selected due to his leadership in and contributions to hand and upper extremity surgery.

Dr. Berner made medical history last year when he became the first surgeon in the United States to perform a new robotic hand surgery procedure using the da Vinci Surgical System.

He earned his degree in medicine from Tufts University School of Medicine. Dr. Berner completed an internship in general surgery and a residency at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, which he followed with a fellowship in hand and microsurgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
