Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery
Hand surgeons have received specialized additional training in the treatment of problems affecting the upper extremity. Commonly treated conditions include:
- Carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Joint pain and stiffness
- Fractures and dislocations of the hand, wrist, forearm and elbow
- Trigger finger
- Tendon and nerve injuries
- Arthritis (degenerative, rheumatoid, posttraumatic)
Treatment is usually started with non-operative modalities such as medications, splints, injections and/or therapy. However, if required, surgical treatment may be recommended with alternatives ranging from arthroscopy over nerve release, joint replacement, fracture fixation and ligament and tendon repair or reconstruction. Through close collaboration with a Certified Hand Therapist, results of both non-operative and operative modalities can be closely monitored and final results optimized.
