C.V. Starr Center Gives New Meaning to Hands-On Care


The newly opened C.V. Starr Center for Hand and Upper Extremity Care is the latest milestone for the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Created through the generous support of the Starr Foundation, this comprehensive new facility was endowed in honor of the late J. William Littler, MD, former director and founder of the hand surgery service at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, now Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West. Its launch adds to the Department’s storied history of bringing groundbreaking tools, techniques, and science to the treatment of the most commonly injured parts of the body—the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and fingers.
