Hand, Wrist & Elbow
Our fellowship-trained hand and upper extremity orthopedic specialist is here to help patients who are experiencing pain or have an injury to their hand, wrist or elbow. A hand specialist understands the complexity of the small bones in the hands and wrists and how they all work together with the tendons and nerves throughout the arm.
There are many different types of conditions that can affect your upper extremities such as:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Arthritis - osteoarthritis and rheumatoid
- Athletic injuries - sprains, strains, disclocated joints
- Tendonitis - including Golf Elbow and Tennis Elbow, from overuse of tendons in the hands and arms
- Breaks and fractures
- Trigger finger
Our hand and upper extremity orthopedic specialist works closely with our therapy department which includes a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) who helps patients using therapy techniques to regain strength and range of motion.
