The Hand Center, at Morgantown Plastic Surgery, is fortunate to have a working relationship with the Hand and Upper Extremity Rehabilitation Center located in Morgantown, WV.

Carol Kisner is a certified hand therapist (CHT). She trained at West Virginia University, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Social Work and her Masters in Occupational Therapy. She was certified as a hand therapist in 2005 and is one of only 17 certified hand therapists in the state of West Virginia.
