Curtis Hand Center which has expanded and is now the Curtis National Hand Center, one of the premier centers for the care of the upper extremity in the country and internationally. His close ties and experiences with the Center continue. He periodically volunteers in the Dominican Republic with surgeons and fellows from the Curtis National Hand Center treating the local population for their upper extremity care. He has also volunteered his expertise treating the people of the Navajo nation on multiple occasions at the public health center on the Navajo reservation in Chinle, Arizona.

Dr. Berkowitz joined the Hand Surgery and Rehabilitation Center of New Jersey in 1992 bringing his expertise in trauma including difficult fractures of the hand and wrist, Carpal Tunnel surgery, complex soft tissue injuries, reconstruction of the injured hand and wrist and vascular disorders. He served as the medical director of the ambulatory surgical center for the Hand Surgery & Rehabilitation Center.

He has published articles and abstracts. He has delivered annual meeting presentations for the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH), American Association for Hand Surgery (AAHS) and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and internationally.
