With over 20 years of experience practicing orthopaedics and hand surgery in the Annapolis area, Dr. Tom Dennis is well respected in the medical community. He has been named as a “Top Doc” by his peers for the third consecutive time, and this year, was honored to also be named as a “Top Doc” for the Eastern Shore. In addition, he was recently the recipient of the Capital’s inaugural “Reader’s Choice” award for Best Orthopaedic Surgeon. Dr. Dennis is grateful to his fellow doctors and his patients for their support and is humbled to receive these honors.

Dr. Dennis started The Annapolis Hand Center two years ago with the goal of providing personalized patient centered treatment. The Hand Center offers superior care to patients with upper extremity problems and is staffed with professionals hand-picked for their individual expertise. Dr. Dennis’ team includes an experienced orthopaedic nurse and a highly skilled occupational hand therapist.

Patients seek out Dr. Dennis’ care for a variety of reasons, including falls from monkey bars, carpal tunnel syndrome, tumors, fractures, and overused or damaged muscles, tendons, and nerves. Though Dr. Dennis’ practice focuses on the care of the upper extremity, he and the Annapolis Hand Center have partnered with Bay Area Orthopaedics to meet all orthopaedic needs including sports medicine, joint replacement, spine care and pain management.

Dr. Dennis studied medicine and orthopaedic surgery at Rutgers/Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completed a fellowship in hand surgery at the University of Southern California before coming to Annapolis. He chose to focus in the area of hand surgery because it covers multiple fields, including neurosurgery, plastic surgery, and orthopedics. Dr. Dennis was the first fellowship trained hand surgeon to join Anne Arundel Medical Center where he continues to perform new and innovative techniques to care for his patients.
