Hand Care

Hand and upper extremity problems can affect anyone and significantly impact a patient's function and quality of life. Hand and upper extremity surgeons are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of problems of the hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and shoulder.
If you have an injury or problem with your hand, wrist, forearm, elbow or shoulder that is causing pain and/or affecting your daily life, you may want to seek treatment. Many conditions can be treated non-surgically with medications, injections, splints and therapy. Your hand surgeon will diagnose your problem and recommend the best course of treatment. 

Common problems treated by a hand surgeon include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Hand numbness
  • Finger lacerations with tendon or nerve injury
  • Hand and wrist arthritis
  • Hand fractures
