Loos joins WVU surgery team

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Matthew S. Loos, M.D., has joined the staff of WVU’s Department of Surgery. Dr. Loos specializes in the treatment of structures related to the hand, wrist and forearm.

According to Loos, there are few hand surgeons in the state. “Everyone needs their hands, and most people abuse them,” he said. “I have a strong affinity for the state and am excited at the opportunity to bring the best possible care to the people of West Virginia.”

Loos specializes in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome; tennis elbow; wrist pain; sports injuries of the hand and wrist; fractures of the hand, wrist, and forearm; trigger finger; work-related injuries; arthritis; and congenital limb defects. He also treats traumatic injuries to the finger, hand and wrist and does reconstruction of bony and soft-tissue injuries.

His areas of research include the treatment of traumatic wounds and radial tunnel syndrome.

A 2003 graduate of the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Loos completed his general surgery internship and residency at WVU. His professional training includes a hand fellowship at the State University of New York at Buffalo’s Hand and Shoulder Center of Western New York.

Loos is a member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand.
