The Hand and Wrist

There are several common pains and conditions that affect the hands and can interfere with your daily activities. A hand injury refers to problems caused by damage to any part of the hand, including the ligaments, bones, joints, tendons, muscles, and nerves.

Typical hand conditions and injuries we treat include:

  • arthritis of the thumb or finger
  • broken finger
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • De Quervain’s syndrome
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • ganglion cyst
  • hand fracture
  • trigger finger or thumb

We perform hand surgery to relieve and repair the following:

  • arthritis
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • ganglion cysts
  • tendon problems

The Wrist and its Injuries

Falls and blows are common causes of wrist injuries. But, as with other joints, overuse and repeated motions can take their toll. Accurate diagnosis and treatment are critical. A orthopedic surgeon can provide comprehensive treatment from diagnosis through rehabilitation, ensuring you aren't out of action too long.

We perform wrist surgery to repair the following:

  • fractures and breaks
  • strains and sprains
  • stretched or torn ligaments and tendons

Your specific hand or wrist problem will determine your treatment plan. We specialize in the latest procedures, including minimally invasive surgery, and more. See the complete list of surgeries we perform.
