    Dr. Stevanovic is a professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. He is internationally renowned for his expertise in treatment of disorders of the hands and upper extremity, microvascular surgery and the management of brachial plexus injuries. He has extensive experience working with patients with peripheral nerve injuries, trauma, burns, microvascular and rheumatoid problems affecting the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. He is internationally renowned for his expertise related to reconstructive microsurgery and limb and digit replantation. Dr. Stevanovic came to the United States from the University of Belgrade, where he was chief of the Hand and Upper Extremity Program and replantation team. He is also a pediatric specialist with expertise in congenital deformities. As the director of the USC Joseph H. Boyes Hand Fellowship Program, Dr. Stevanovic is dedicated to teaching and mentoring the next generation of surgeons and has been honored with numerous teaching awards. Recently inducted into the Serbian Science Academy, Dr. Stevanovic has conducted extensive research on upper extremity reconstruction. In addition to publishing clinical research papers, he has also contributed chapters for hand surgery textbooks and serves as a reviewer for several hand and microsurgery journals. He received his medical degree from the University of Belgrade in Serbia, Yugoslavia and completed his fellowship training in hand surgery at the USC Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and his training in microsurgery at Duke University Medical Center.
