Dr. F. Thomas D. Kaplan's bio

Dr. Kaplan comes from Baltimore, MD, where he graduated summa cum laude and valedictorian of his medical school class. He trained in orthopaedics at NYU / Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City, then pursued sub-specialty training in hand, microvascular, and upper extremity surgery at the Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center in 2001. Dr. Kaplan is very involved in the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and was selected as a Young Leader by the Society in 2007. He has subsequently served on and chaired multiple committees, and is a reviewer for the Journal of Hand Surgery.  He also currently serves as Vice-Chairman of Hand Surgery at St. Vincent’s Hospital.

Dr. Kaplan has a strong commitment to research and education. He has been integrally involved as a lead investigator in research on collagenase injection for Dupuytren’s contracture, culminating in FDA approval and publication in the New England Journal of Medicine. He has given numerous national and international lectures, and has been published in multiple journals. Dr. Kaplan is also actively involved in our fellowship program, a cornerstone to the mission of the Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center.  He assists Dr. Greenberg in managing the fellowship and strives to continually improve it.
