He sees patients at The Curtis National Hand Center at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

Dr. Giladi’s published research includes work on surgical outcomes, measuring post-traumatic impairment and disability, Medicaid expansion, delivery of upper extremity surgical care, trauma systems and networks, and how these elements affect care implementation and policy. As Research Director, he coordinates basic science, animal, biomechanics, and clinical outcomes studies through the Hand Center, as well as collaborative efforts across specialties and institutions. His clinical focus is on upper extremity trauma, wrist fractures, nerve and vascular problems, arthritis care, and care for patients with amputations.  He is surgical lead for the MedStar Union Memorial Hospital Fracture Liaison Service.  His ongoing academic work centers on the interaction between upper extremity treatment outcomes, patient satisfaction, care delivery and costs, and how these various elements contribute to measuring quality and value.  He also leads clinical trials on managing nerve pain (neuromas) after amputations as well as big data studies aimed at preventing opioid addiction. He has received research grant funding from the Department of Defense, the National Institutes of Health, and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand.
