The hand surgery team is dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of simple—and complex—disorders of the hand and upper extremities. Our orthopaedic and plastic surgeons, and certified hand therapists work in concert to address each patient’s individual needs, and to develop treatment plans that promote the fullest possible recovery.
Our team of highly skilled surgeons are hand experts with specialized training and years of experience performing procedures on the complicated and delicate mix of nerves, bones, tendons and soft tissue in the hand, wrist and elbow.
Our certified hand therapists have completed rigorous training and been awarded certification in the rehabilitation of the hand, wrist and upper extremities—and are critical to the Center’s collaborative approach to treatment.
We provide comprehensive care from diagnosis through recovery and rehabilitation. No matter the problem, the goal is always to improve movement, preserve sensation, and help patients reach their highest level of functioning.
Our team treats a broad range of conditions from severe trauma to tennis elbow and everything in between—problems that make it difficult for people to function day-to-day. These disorders can be the result of injury, illness, or birth abnormalities and include:
We employ a variety of treatment options, depending on each patient’s unique condition. While surgery is frequently the best therapeutic solution for patients, the team may also recommend non-surgical treatments, such as medication, splints, hand therapy or injections.
