At the conclusion of Albert Weiss, M.D.'s fellowship in surgery of the hand, the then-only hand surgeon at Shriners Children's Philadelphia announced that he would be leaving Philadelphia. To Dr. Weiss's great pleasure, chief of staff Howard Steel contacted him to inquire about his willingness to fill that void, and Dr. Weiss has never left. Dr. Weiss says it was an honor to be asked, and it remains an honor to continue on the staff, now, seven years into what would otherwise be his retirement.

As the third hand surgeon at our hospital, with support from fellows in hand surgery and super-fellows in pediatric hand surgery, Dr. Weiss's enthusiasm for Shriners Children's and the children we serve remains abounding. Dr. Weiss says his involvement with Shriners Children's will be the defining component of his professional career.
