Dr. Braunstein attended medical school in New Brunswick, New Jersey at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, also completing his internship and residency at Robert Wood Johnson. He is board certified and fellowship trained in hand and upper extremity, completing his fellowship at Stony Brook Medical Center in New York before joining Tucson Orthopaedic Institute.
Dr. Braunstein’s specialty includes the entire arm, from shoulder to the fingertips. He is trained in the latest surgical techniques, such as arthroscopic and microsurgical procedures for the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. He works closely with each patient, helping them to understand the cause of their pain, and the best treatment going forward.
He has experience with rotator cuff tears and complete shoulder replacements, as well as more general orthopedic conditions such as bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, and fracture care.
“The worst pain is from carpel tunnel syndrome…”, Dr. Braunstein recently stated at a lecture given at Green Valley Recreation’s East Center in 2015. Other common conditions of the upper extremities are “golfer’s elbow” (lateral epicondylitis) and De Quervain’s tenosynovitis, which is painful inflammation of the thumb tendons. Dr. Braunstein also treats patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
We are proud and privileged to have Dr. Braunstein working with us here at Tucson Orthopaedic. His expertise with the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder is invaluable.
