About Me

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.

Dr. Langhammer completed his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering at Princeton University (Princeton, New Jersey) with a certificate in biomaterials. He then completed his medical degree and Doctor of Philosophy in biomedical engineering at Rutgers, the state University of New Jersey. His research was focused on development of neural prosthetics for restoration of function following amputation and spinal cord injury. He completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of California–San Francisco, followed by a fellowship in hand, upper extremity and microvascular surgery in the training program at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.
