Upper Extremity and Hand Surgery
Upper extremity and hand surgery restores function
Can you imagine life without the use of your shoulders, wrists and hands? They are the most used and useful structures in the upper extremities. Because we use them so much and in so many ways, the joints, muscles, tendons and nerves are also subject to injury. When an injury occurs or a condition develops, we seek to relieve pain and restore function.
We treat conditions such as:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- Hand, wrist and forearm trauma
- Tendon and nerve problems
- Dupuytren’s contracture
- DeQuervain’s disease
- Ganglion cysts
Skillful, precise surgical care when necessary
When nonsurgical treatments such as medications, injection therapy and physical therapy cannot provide sufficient relief of pain and dysfunction, our skilled orthopedic surgeon specialists can perform the most advanced shoulder surgery and hand surgery procedures:
- Shoulder arthroscopy
- Rotator cuff tear repair
- Clavicle excision and resection
- Wrist/thumb arthroplasty
- Wrist/hand arthroscopy
- Nerve and tendon repairs
- Carpal tunnel surgery and cubital tunnel syndrome repairs
- Tendon repair
We also provide therapeutic exercise and custom splinting to help structures heal properly after surgery and prevent further injury. When surgery becomes the best or only option for the optimal outcome, we use the latest repair and reconstruction techniques. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons always look for the most effective treatment options to achieve the best possible results for each patient. We hope you will call upon us whenever you have a question or a concern.
