Dr. E. Gene Deune is an associate professor of orthopaedic surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

Dr. Deune has unique expertise in the preservation of limb form and function in patients with upper and lower extremity sarcomas, using advanced microsurgical techniques for vascular, nerve, muscle and tissue reconstruction. He is nationally and internationally recognized for his work and has given numerous talks, panels and instructional courses on hand and extremity tumors and reconstruction.

He sees patients with common hand conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome (median nerve compression) offering both minimal incision (endoscopic) and open carpal tunnel release. Other clinical areas include ulnar nerve compression at the elbow, tendinitis affecting the fingers and hands, hand arthritis, skin cancers affecting the hand, Dupuytren’s contracture, benign vascular and nonvascular tumors of the hand and fingers, ganglion cysts, and tendon transfers for nerve palsy. He also cares for children with common congenital conditions such as webbed fingers, congenital trigger thumb and extra fingers.

Dr. Deune’s research interests include hand surgery, microvascular surgery and extremity tumor and reconstruction.

He is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He completed his general surgery and plastic surgery residencies and the hand/microsurgery fellowship at Washington University.

Dr. Deune joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 1998 as a member of the Division of Plastic Surgery; he joined the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in 2008. more
