About Us

Any patient seen by Bay Area Hand Surgery Associates is guaranteed to receive the most capable and experienced surgeons for all types of hand and upper extremity problems.

Our goal is to treat pain, cure disease, and improve function in those suffering from trauma; nerve, tendon, muscle, or bone injuries; tumors; arthritic conditions; and congenital or acquired deformity.

Our underlying philosophy favors conservative modes of treatment which includes hand therapy, physical therapy, splinting and bracing, and medication whenever possible. We believe that improvement of the patientís work environment through ergonomic measures can help to reduce and prevent work-related hand and upper extremity disorders.

Mathias Masem, MD is the founder of Bay Area Hand Surgery Associates has been in practice in Oakland since 1987. In 2007, Dr. Masem expanded his practice by the addition of other hand and upper extremity specialty physicians and renamed his hand surgery practice Bay Area Hand Surgery Associates.
