Common Hand Issues
- Carpal Tunnel – Typically presenting itself with numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand, Carpal Tunnel can be extremely uncomfortable and disruptive to your everyday life. Our team specializes in Carpal Tunnel surgery where the hand surgeon modifies the carpal ligament in your palm to relieve nerve pressure.
- Arthritis of the hand, wrist, elbow or shoulder – When the stiffness and pain of arthritis kicks in, it can be difficult to carry out your every day activities. Osteoarthritis may be treated with joint fusion or joint reconstruction to treat severely damaged joints and ligaments.
- Trigger Finger/Trigger Thumb – If you are experiencing the discomfort of finger stiffness, popping or swelling, our trigger finger procedures may be a good option for you. This procedure is performed by our surgeons to relieve tightness caused by inflammation in the hand’s tendon.
- Fractures of the hand, wrist, elbow or shoulder
