Dr. Gluck is a new addition to the Hand Center of Nevada. He brings with him a unique skill set that allows for comprehensive care of the entire upper extremity from hand to shoulder. He feels that it is important to educate each patient about their problem, and he enjoys spending time with his patients to help address their individual needs in a caring and compassionate manner.                      

Comprehensive Upper Extremity Care from Hand to Shoulder

Dr. Gluck was born and raised in Miami, FL. He attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he majored in Biology, minored in Chemistry, and received a National Johnson&Johnson Research Award for his work in Biophysics and atomic force microscopy. His enjoyment and love for patient interaction during medical genetics research led him to the New York University School of Medicine to pursue a career in patient care.

His interest in Orthopaedics developed while working at the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases, and he went on to complete his Orthopaedic training at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.  While there, he had the opportunity to work with many NCAA Division I collegiate athletes and participate in Orthopaedic surgical mission trips to Nicaragua.

Dr. Gluck then completed an additional year of microsurgcial, hand, and upper extremity/shoulder surgery training at the prestigious Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. During his fellowship, he gained additional experience in pediatric congenital deformity correction, shoulder arthroscopy and joint replacement, reimplantation of traumatic amputations, and brachial plexus reconstruction. Dr. Gluck speaks Spanish, and is a member of the American Academy of  Orthopaedic Surgeons(AAOS) and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand(ASSH).
