Hand and wrist specialists
Our hand surgeons use conservative, evidence based approaches to treat hand and wrist disorders like dupuytrens, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, nerve injuries, and complex hand and wrist fractures. Our goal is to restore optimal function and eliminate or reduce pain. Not everyone requires surgery, and non-operative treatments offer additional options for patients such as injections or physical therapy. Our hand and upper extremity (arm below the shoulder) team of fellowship trained orthopedic surgeons and physician assistants work together to diagnose and treat conditions to get you back to what you love doing.
When to see a hand and wrist specialist
The hand and wrist are made up of an extremely complex structure of joints, bones, and muscles and are engaged almost constantly in daily life. When function is limited by an injury or disease, it’s important to see an orthopedic hand specialist promptly to evaluate and treat the condition. Our hand specialists treat patients with a range of issues from nerve conditions and arthritis to sprains and sports-related injuries. Patients with hand and/or wrist problems report symptoms such as:
- Thumb pain that extends to the wrist
- Swelling and stiffness
- Pain while doing daily tasks, like opening a jar
- Weakness when gripping or pinching
- Tingling sensations
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it may be time to see one of our orthopedic hand surgeons.
