About Harvey W M Chim

Harvey W. Chim, MD, FACS, is a professor in the division of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Florida College of Medicine.

Dr. Chim completed a plastic surgery residency at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and a fellowship in hand and microsurgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is board certified through the American Board of Plastic Surgery with a Certificate of Added Qualification in Surgery of the Hand. He is also a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has served as a scientific peer reviewer for the Department of Defense and also serves on committees for the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and Plastic Surgery Research Council. Dr. Chim has received grant funding from the Plastic Surgery Foundation, as well as the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Dr. Chim has authored more than 110 publications in peer-reviewed journals. His clinical and research focus is on hand surgery and limb salvage, complex peripheral nerve surgery and brachial plexus reconstruction. He was the recipient of the 2018 Gelberman Scholar Award from the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) and travelled around the world teaching and learning new surgical techniques as a representative of the ASSH and North American hand surgery. He recently served as a Visiting Professor for the ASSH, teaching peripheral nerve surgery to programs around the USA. He also serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Hand Surgery.

Dr. Chim is an expert in upper and lower extremity limb salvage as well as brachial plexus and complex peripheral nerve reconstruction. He is referred patients on a routine basis from all over Florida and the Southeastern USA. Other clinical areas of interest include vascularized bone grafts, endoscopic hand and plastic surgery and surgical treatment of migraine headaches. Dr. Chim often is able to offer additional reconstructive options to patients who have been told that their only option moving forward is an amputation. In addition, for amputees Dr. Chim offers a procedure termed targeted muscle reinnervation, which aims at treating chronic pain and offering the potential to operate a more advanced myoelectric prosthesis.
