DrDr. Robin Kamal is an orthopaedic surgeon with subspecialty training in orthopaedic trauma and hand/upper extremity surgery practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California. He maintains a busy clinical practice and teaches students, residents, and fellows daily as an Assistant Professor at Stanford University. He maintains active research collaborations with Queen’s University, and is a co-founder of the Wrist Institute, created to design patient-specific surgical reconstructions. Dr. Kamal is widely recognized for his research in the biomechanics of the wrist and is a member of the Hand Surgery Quality Consortium (HSQC), a nation-wide organization of hand surgeons with the mission of improving the quality of hand surgery care for all patients. He is also co-editor of the book Comprehensive Board Review in Orthopaedic Surgery, aimed at improving the orthopaedic surgery education of residents, fellows, and practicing orthopaedic surgeons.

Dr. Kamal strives to provide all of his patients the best care possible – a commitment he takes seriously and considers to be his foremost priority. Because of his unique training background in both orthopaedic trauma and hand surgery, he has experience managing both common hand problems and complex reconstructions of the upper extremity including fracture nonunion, malunion, and instability. He understands being a patient with hand, wrist, or elbow trauma can be difficult to manage. In his approach, he finds reasonable and effective treatment pathways for the full range of hand conditions which are as minimally invasive as possible.

Dr. Kamal primarily treats adults and adolescents with problems affecting the hand, wrist, and elbow.
