Dr. Langhammer strives to make the process of receiving medical care as convenient as possible for his patients, with multiple locations for clinical and surgical care. He believes in a patient-centered approach to care, that no two patients are alike.
"Matching patients with the correct treatment process, whether that is a complex surgical reconstruction or reassurance and guided exercises, is the most important thing for good patient recovery," he says.
At the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at University of Maryland Medical Center, Dr. Langhammer treats severe injuries of the skeleton, muscles, blood vessels and nerves in the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. He also contributes to multidisciplinary reconstructive procedures in the arm and leg. In his outpatient practice, he enjoys addressing the needs of the general community, including degenerative conditions like arthritis and nerve compression. He also accommodates complex conditions including deformity after stroke or traumatic brain injury, nonunions and malunions of the bone, brachial plexus and nerve injury, and phantom limb pain after arm or leg amputation.
Dr. Langhammer is an assistant professor in orthopedic surgery and orthopaedic hand surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. He is also a hand and upper extremity trauma specialist and microvascular surgeon at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

External Professional Relationships
A University of Maryland Department of Orthopaedics faculty member may have external professional relationships with health-care related businesses. These relationships often lead to the development of new treatments and therapies. The Department of Orthopaedics believes that transparency and honesty in the reporting of these relationships is essential to maintaining trust with our patients and mitigating any conflicts of interest or perceived conflicts that may arise.
For faculty who earn royalties on the sale of medical devices, no royalties are earned on any devices sold to patients or to hospitals that are part of the University of Maryland Medical System or in any other facilities where those faculty members treat patients.
All external professional relationships maintained by members of the University of Maryland Department of Orthopaedics are reviewed and approved in advance by the Dean of the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UM SOM) for conformance with UM SOM policies in regarding conflicts of interest, conflicts of commitment, and professionalism.
