Hand Surgery

The hand is a unique area of the human body that is made up of bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. These elements must all be in good working order for the hand to function well.

The relationship between all these structures is delicate and refined. An injury or disease can affect any or all of these structures and impair the use of the hand.

Common problems treated include:

    • carpal tunnel syndrome
    • tennis elbow
    • wrist pain
    • sports injuries of the hand and wrist
    • fractures of the hand, wrist, and forearm
    • trigger finger
    • Other problems include arthritis, nerve and tendon injuries, and congenital limb differences (birth defects).
