Restoring Hand

Charles C. Jehle, M.D.Assistant Professor, Hand Surgery Specialist

As a Kansas native, my desire is to care for those in the greater Kansas City area with a wide variety of needs and teach residents and student doctors how to be safe, competent physicians. After completing an integrated plastic surgery residency at Brown University, I completed a hand and microsurgery fellowship at University in Pennsylvania. I returned to Kansas to establish a practice with an emphasis on the full spectrum of hand surgery, including extremity reconstruction and peripheral nerve surgery. Additionally, I provide reconstruction for congenital differences, wounds, injuries, and post-cancer surgery.
