A compassionate surgeon who believes in personalized care...

Born and raised in South Jersey, Dr. Kane is excited to return home and join the South Jersey Hand Center.   “Whether it was spending time at the beach as a kid or competing in ocean races as a lifeguard, the shore has always been a special place for me and my family.  I feel lucky and privileged to take care of the people who make the shore their home.”

Practice Goals and Philosophy

“I truly believe the best possible treatment requires both a comprehensive understanding of the disease process as well as a thorough understanding of the patient, who they are and how their injury has effected their life”.  

Dr. Kane prides himself on being able to integrate this philosophy into his practice.  Often there are multiple ways to treat a problem and Dr. Kane believes that having a discussion, describing the problem, presenting the various treatment options and then deciding as a physician-patient team results in the best possible care. 

Dr. Kane’s practice focuses on the hand, wrist, arm and elbow as well as some shoulder conditions.
