Hand & Wrist

Our hands serve many purposes. Hands help us eat, dress, write, earn a living, create art, and do many other activities. To do these activities, our hands require sensation and movement, such as joint motion, tendon gliding, and muscle contraction. When a problem takes place in the hand, care must be given to all the different types of tissues that make function of the hand possible.

Examples of conditions treated by a hand surgeon are:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Wrist pain
  • Lacerations including tendons of the hand and wrist
  • Sports injuries to the hand and wrist
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Trigger Finger

If you have pain in your fingers, hand, wrist or arm, or have other upper-extremity related concerns, you should consult a hand and upper extremity specialist.
