The hands and wrists are a common site of fractures, tendonitis, and arthritis. Many children and adults fall on an outstretched hand and fracture their wrist. In most cases these fractures rarely require surgery and a cast is the appropriate treatment. The hand and wrist are used continuously throughout the day and therefore various forms of tendonitis can occur. Rest and immobilization and/or injections are treatments for tendonitis. Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis are two forms of arthritis that commonly affect the hand and can cause bony deformities and pain in joints.
Our physicians treat various conditions involving the hands and wrists. Other common procedures performed by our surgeons include carpal tunnel syndrome, ganglion cyst removal, and trigger finger releases.
