Dr. Patrick Kane, of the renowned Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center, is pleased to welcome the community to the practice’s new state-of-the-art office in Cape May Court House at 207 Court House South Dennis Road. With advanced diagnostics, modern exam rooms, a full-service therapy clinic and plenty of convenient patient parking, this new expanded space will allow Dr. Kane to better serve his local patients.

A local resident who grew up lifeguarding in Avalon, Dr. Kane is a board-cer­tified orthopedic hand surgeon who treats injuries and conditions of the hands, wrists, arms, elbows and shoulders. His specialty includes osteo and rheuma­toid arthritis, upper extremity trauma, soft tissue reconstruction and compres­sive neuropathies, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

“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,” he said.

His approach is simple; Dr. Kane believes treatment requires a comprehensive understanding of the disease process as well as a thorough understanding of the patient. Who is the patient, why has their injury or condition brought them to the physician, and what will it take to return them to their lifestyle? These philosophies are incorporated with pride into his practice.

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

Providing personalized care based on research and innovation is the driving force behind Dr. Kane’s practice. For the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center, advancements in treatment, surgical and therapeutic techniques for the hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder have been nothing short of astonishing for over 45 years. Dr. Kane upholds the practice’s style and stays ahead of the curve, while remaining approachable to patients.

Dr. Kane and his team of specialty-trained therapists provide non-surgical and surgical treatments and rehabilitation of injuries and conditions affecting the fingers, hands, wrists and arms.

After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Kane attended Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Rutgers University. After Medical School, he completed his residency at Brown University in Providence, R.I.

Dr. Kane is dual fellowship trained, having completed his Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship at Rhode Island Hospital/Brown University Fellowship Program and his Hand & Upper Extremity Fellowship at the nationally re­nowned Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center/Thomas Jefferson University Hand & Upper Extremity Fellowship Program.

“During my orthopedic training, I was drawn to hand surgery because of the monumental impact hand surgeons have on their patients’ lives. From com­mon injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome to more devastating traumatic injuries like amputations, hand surgeons restore not only the function of a pa­tient’s hand but empower the patient to be return to activity and to be better able to interact with their environment again. This is incredibly powerful and fulfilling work.”

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 feels that listening to his patients, having discussion, including educating about the problem(s), presenting various treatment options, and then deciding the best approach as a physician-patient team ultimately results in the best possible care.

Dr. Kane is on staff and operates at local facilities within the Cape Re­gional, AtlantiCare, and Virtua Health Systems. For more information about Dr. Kane, his partners and all 17 Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center office locations, please visit

Dr. Kane has won various awards for his research including: the Michael Ehrlich Basic Science Research Award, the Peter Trafton Orthopaedic Trauma Research Award and the Kilfoyle Award given to the most influential resident research paper, New England Orthopaedic Society.
