No matter who you are or what you do, you are always using your hands. Thus, hands and fingers are prone to a number of different disorders and conditions. Our experts customize treatments for hand disorders, based upon the type of condition and the level of pain or disability.
The Center for Musculoskeletal Disorders offers cutting edge, minimally invasive, compassionate diagnosis and treatment for all hand problems and will always take the time to make sure you are well informed about, understand, and are comfortable with all aspects of your care.
Our physicians address a wide range of conditions involving the hand, wrist and fingers. Hand, wrist and finger disorders are quite common. Most hand and wrist problems develop from repetitive motion, disease or a sport / work related injury.
Proper and timely treatment of a hand condition are recommended to avoid any future functional impairment, permanent damage and chronic pain.
Common symptoms of a hand or wrist condition or injury can include: Pain, Swelling, Numbness, Throbbing, Tingling and Restricted and Limited Motion. A person experiencing any of these symptoms for more than a few days should schedule an appointment a hand and wrist doctor.
Our orthopedic hand, wrist and finger experts offer a wide range of treatments to combat the multitude of disorders impacting the hand and wrist. These range from non-invasive, such as splints, medications or injections, to surgical solutions when necessary. Relying on thorough evaluations and accurate diagnoses, our experts ensure exceptional care.
Non-surgical treatment options are used to resolve the majority of hand, wrist and finger disorders. Surgery may be recommended if conservative treatment fails to resolve a patient’s condition or if the affected area will not benefit from a non-surgical approach.
A surgical procedure may be needed to properly treat degenerative disorders and traumatic injuries. Our orthopedic hand surgeons make use of advanced minimally-invasive and open surgical techniques to treat a broad range conditions and issues. Most hand, wrist and finger procedures are performed as outpatient services.
When possible, our hand surgeon prefers to use minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat injuries and soft tissue damage. The smaller incisions made using a minimally invasive surgical approach creates less scarring, a faster recovery, and typically less post-operative pain. An arthroscopy and percutaneous procedure are examples of minimally invasive surgical approaches a hand surgeon may utilize depending on the disorder or injury.
Our hand and wrist surgeon is highly experienced and skilled using open surgery, mini-open surgery and microsurgery techniques to help restore strength and functionality to nerves, tendons, joints and bones in the hand. Our orthopedic hand surgeon also does revisions to previous hand surgeries and complex joint replacement surgery.
Post-operative hand care typically includes immobilization (cast/splint) for short period of time and rehabilitation to regain strength and functionality in the hand.
