Hand and wrist injuries our orthopedists treat

Typical hand injuries

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.

Hand conditions 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

  • Tendon problems

  • Trigger finger or thumb

Typical wrist 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. An 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.
