Alexander Haselkorn, M.D. has been in
private practice in Paterson, New Jersey for more than 31 years.
Originally he was trained as a General Surgeon at Albert
Einstein/Bronx Municipal Hospital and Beth Israel Hospital in New York
City. He also had the opportunity to train with Alfred Swanson, a
pioneer in hand surgery, who developed most of the techniques in
reconstructive hand surgery. Dr. Haselkorn was a Swanson Hand Fellow
at Blodget Memorial Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Dr. Haselkorn’s practice now is
primarily devoted to the evaluation and treatment of hand and wrist
problems. He has extensive experience treating hand injuries and
deformities associated with arthritis, congenital anomalies, and nerve
problems. At present, he is the chief of the Louis and Edith Haselkorn
Hand Service at Barnert Hospital in Paterson, New Jersey, which has
the best-equipped center in northern New Jersey for treating hand and
wrist problems, including operating room microscope and x-ray machines
solely for wrists and hands. He also practices out of St. Mary's
Hospital in Passaic, and Chilton Hospital in Pompton Plains, NJ. Dr.
Haselkorn is capable of performing complex reconstructive procedures,
joint replacements, and microscopic nerve repairs.
He also treats a large number of
job-related injuries, including Repetitive Strain Injuries such as
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, stenosing tenosynivitis (trigger fingers),
DeQuervain’s Disease (compression of tendons in the first dorsal
compartment of the wrist).
