Dr. Abzug is an associated professor of orthopaedics at the University of Maryland School of  Medicine.

Dr. Abzug has completed specialty training to focus his practice on the pediatric upper extremity. While the child's upper extremity is similar to an adult's, numerous injuries and conditions are unique to children.  The added specialization Dr. Abzug provides enables children to be cared for in the best manner possible. Whether it is a congenital hand difference, a brachial plexus birth palsy, a traumatic injury, or other upper extremity concern, Dr. Abzug is there for you and your child. His calming and reassuring nature enables the child and their caregivers to fully understand what is wrong and how to care for it.

Dr. Abzug is actively involved in teaching medical students, residents and fellows as part of his position here at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Additionally, he teaches numerous physicians at the local, regional, and national levels. Dr. Abzug is also actively involved in numerous research projects pertaining to the pediatric upper extremity that he has presented locally, nationally, and internationally. He has published many of the projects in medical journals as well as authored multiple book chapters.
