About Robert Strauch

Robert J. Strauch, MD - Surgeon of Hand, Wrist & Elbow at ColumbiaDoctors

Robert J. Strauch, MD, specializes in the diagnosis and surgical and non-surgical treatment of hand, wrist and elbow problems in adults and children. He has a special interest in nerve problems of the upper extremity (including carpal tunnel syndrome) and in treating congenital hand disorders. The specialty of Hand Surgery melds together elements and principles of orthopedic, plastic, neurological and vascular surgery to restore and maximize hand and upper extremity function, whether wielding a jackhammer, throwing a baseball, or playing the violin.

Dr. Strauch has authored and co-authored numerous articles in the field of hand surgery and is actively engaged in basic and clinical research. He served as President of the New York Society for Surgery of the Hand in 2006-2007.

Dr. Strauch has been included in the list of New York Magazine's and “Best Doctors in New York” in addition to being regularly listed in America's Top Doctors. He is also an accomplished amateur magician and has been known to entertain as well as to diagnose and treat his patients. Children, especially, actually look forward to a return office visit with the "magician".
