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.
