Hand, Wrist, & Upper Extremity

What do Hand, Wrist, and Extremity Specialists Do?

We all do a lot with our hands every day. Injuries, repetitive tasks, or other conditions can make use of these important tools quite difficult and frustrating. When a problem to the hand, wrist, forearm or elbow will not go away, it may be time to see a specialist.

We have orthopedic specialists who are solely focused on treating the bones, muscles, nerves, and joints of the hand and related extremities. They see patients for a variety of reasons. Sports-related injuries to the hand or wrist can result in fractions or dislocations. This kind of trauma can also include tendon, nerve and blood vessel injuries. Other times it might be work-related injuries due to an accident or occur from years of repetitive motion such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Whatever the cause, we have highly-skilled specialists that can treat arthritis, vascular disease and circulatory disturbances in the hand, trigger finger, cubital tunnel syndrome, and radial tunnel syndrome.

Our Specialists Help to Correct and Improve Your Condition

Our team recognizes that treating the underlying pain though surgery can do a great deal in improving everyday life for patients, but the best treatment will include having a plan in place for how to avoid such situations again, especially in the case where the condition was caused by repetitive use. We equip you with the information and advice you need to care for your hand and wrist health going forward.
