Dr. Mark R. Paiste, D.O., a hand, wrist and microvascular surgeon, has joined Shore Orthopaedic University Associates, the group recently announced.

“I feel it is important to help patients truly understand their condition and to offer guidance in their decision on treatment options. My particular interest and subspecialty training is in treating disorders of the hand, wrist, and upper extremity,” Paiste said. “As a physician and surgeon I am dedicated to helping patients return to doing the activities they need or love to do."

Paiste graduated Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2006, completed his surgical internship and orthopedic surgery residency at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2011 and last year completed his fellowship in hand, upper extremity, and microvascular surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark, according to staff at Shore Orthopaedic.

He has also contributed to several orthopedic research papers during his training.

He specializes in traumatic and degenerative disorders of the hand, wrist, and upper extremity, general orthopedic and arthroscopic surgery, according to information from Shore Orthopaedic.

In addition, Paiste also practices general orthopedic and arthroscopic surgery. Paiste is the only fellowship-trained hand surgeon in Cape May County at this time, according to Shore Orthopaedic.

Paiste is in his final phase of receiving his board certification by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He is a member of the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics and the American Osteopathic Association. He is also a candidate member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American Association for Hand Surgery and is pursuing his candidate membership of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand.

Prior to medical school, Paiste graduated from Widener University with a mechanical engineering degree in 1996. He served as a mechanical design engineer at numerous companies including ConMed Linvatec and Synthes, which the company described as global leaders in the design and manufacture of orthopedic surgical implants and instruments. During his employment at ConMed Linvatec, he became the co-inventor of a surgical device and technique for use in the repair of torn rotator cuff tendons and instability of the shoulder. Paiste plans to further use his engineering skills as a design consultant for orthopedic devices.
