Dr. Niver’s interest in hand surgery started when he learned about the intricacies of the forearm and hand compartments during his first-semester anatomy course in medical school. He says, “I enjoy hand surgery because it combines skills for a wide range of procedures, including fractures repair, nerve repair, tendon transfers and ligament reconstructions. In addition, it’s gratifying to improve my patients’ manual dexterity, limb use and quality of life.”
Dr. Niver is a team physician for Westfield High School, Madison High School and Fairleigh Dickenson University. He is also the hand and upper extremity consultant for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League.
