Hand, Wrist and Elbow


Who We Treat


Injuries and disorders of the hand and upper extremity - those that impact the hand, wrist, and arm - are not only painful, they can disrupt - the movement and function that is vital to your daily activities, from eating to dressing - to earning a living.

A broken finger, for example, is no minor injury. The bones in a normal hand line up precisely, enabling you to perform specialized functions such as grasping a pen or manipulating small objects in your palm. When you fracture a finger bone, it can cause your whole hand to be out of alignment.

Hand and upper extremity surgeons are specially trained to care for these problems with both surgical and nonsurgical treatment, to help ease your pain and get you back to your normal routine.
