  • Hand/Wrist Fractures – Injuries to the hand and wrist bones and joints are very common in every age group. This is typically due to landing on an outstretched hand after a fall. Prompt, accurate diagnosis and proper treatment are essential for regaining full function after hand and wrist fractures.
  • Ligament Injuries – Ligament damage in the wrist after an injury can cause serious function problems down the road. While a partial injury may heal with rest and support, a torn or separated ligament needs surgery to correct.
  • Nerve Injuries – Lack of sensation or problems with muscle operation may indicate an injured nerve. Surgical repair of the nerve can improve hand and wrist function again.
  • Replantation (Digit) – The surgical reattachment of digits or thumbs requires a high level of skill in order to restore function again after an injury or trauma.
  • Tendon Injuries – Tendon injuries cause problems bending or opening the finger joints, depending on whether flexor or extensor tendons were affected. Early treatment increases the chance of full recovery.
  • Tennis Elbow (Golfer’s Elbow) – Tennis elbow, also known as golfer’s elbow, is a form of tendon injury caused by repetitive motion. Conservative treatment often relieves the symptoms.
  • Wrist Sprains or Dislocations – Wrist sprains are a type of ligament injury, while a dislocation means the bones have been forced out of alignment.
