Dr. Jaimie T. Shores is an assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Dr. Shores co-founded the Hand/Arm Transplant Program – a component of the John Hopkins Comprehensive Transplant Center’s Reconstructive Transplant Program – and serves as its clinical director. In addition to hand transplantation, Dr. Shores performs general plastic and reconstructive surgery, specializing in surgery and microsurgery of the hands and upper extremities.

He is an expert on treating fractures of the forearms, wrists and hands, as well as vascular, tendon, and nerve injuries and conditions. He also treats patients with a range of hand and arm conditions, including carpel tunnel syndrome, trigger finger and arthritis.

Dr. Shores earned his medical degree from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. He completed a plastic surgery residency at California’s Loma Linda University Medical Center, as well as a fellowship in hand surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Prior to joining the Hopkins faculty in 2011, Dr. Shores was a core member of the Hand Transplant Program at the University of Pittsburgh.

There he served as a co-investigator of a clinical study of a novel immunomodulation protocol for hand allotransplantation. This study led to the nation’s first bilateral hand transplant and first arm transplant – and the most hands transplanted in the U.S.

American Board of Plastic Surgery-certified in surgery of the hand and plastic surgery, Dr. Shores also holds a Certificate of Added Qualifications in the subspecialty of hand surgery. more
