Hand & Arm Surgery

Treatment for Hand, Wrist, Elbow and Shoulder Orthopedic Conditions

When it comes to treating conditions and injuries of the hand and arm, experience matters. Pain in your hand, wrist or arm may be from overuse, an injury or a chronic condition. We begin with a thorough evaluation and offer a variety of treatments.

Our team-based approach means you get advanced orthopedic care tailored specifically to you. Our team is composed of five fellowship-trained hand/arm surgeons, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and an athletic trainer. With our complete orthopedic care, you’ll be ready to return to your favorite activities.

  • Ligament, nerve and tendon injuries
  • Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis

Hand Therapy Services

Our team approach pairs occupational therapists with orthopedic specialists to address all aspects of your care. Licensed hand therapists with extensive training in upper extremities combine talents with our hand surgery team to help you get your best result.

We evaluate your daily routine, home environment and workplace so your treatment plan meets your needs. A computerized work simulator helps you practice your skills in a safe environment.

We offer custom splints to reduce scarring and allow your fingers, elbow or wrist to move without using too much force. We use heat, therapeutic exercises and other treatments to increase your range of motion and improve the quality of your movement.
