Dr. Hotchkiss specializes in the treatment of elbow injuries, hand and wrist injuries and arthritis, and vascular disorders of the hand. He was named as one of the "Best Doctors in New York," by New York magazine in 2009 and is a professor of orthopedic surgery at the Weill Cornell Medical College.

Recently, Dr. Hotchkiss developed a drug delivery platform that provides sustained, controlled local release of therapeutics to bones and joints spaces. This platform will ensure that the optimal dose of medication is delivered precisely to the location where it can be most effective. Dr. Hotchkiss and his team also recently developed a new prototype for an implant for use in total elbow replacement and special instrumentation that will improve both surgical techniques and implant longevity. He has also done clinical trials on the removal of volar plates after distal Radius fracture and treating carpometacarpal osteoarthritis.
