Hand & Wrist Surgery

Hand and upper extremity surgery are a sub-specialty of orthopaedics that deals with the treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of disorders of the hand, elbow, and upper extremity. An orthopaedic surgeon has a Doctor of Medicine and training that encompasses both orthopaedic residency and an optional 6-month to one year of fellowship training specific in techniques of hand, elbow, and upper extremity surgery.

Hand and upper extremity surgeons are trained to treat all related disorders, both surgically and non-surgically. The surgeons specialize in the treatment of injuries and conditions from the shoulders to the fingertips, including fractures, hand and wrist arthritis, neuropathies, sports/work-related injuries, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, traumatic injuries, Dupuytren’s Contracture, tumors and masses, finger sprains and dislocations, trigger finger, and cubital tunnel syndrome.
