Hand & Wrist Conditions

Your hands and wrists are essential tools that allow you to play, work and conduct everyday activities. How well the hand and wrist interact depends on the integrity and function of the ligaments, tendons, muscles, joints and bones.

Hand and wrist conditions can affect upper extremity function, causing disruptions at work and home and negatively impacting quality of life.

The human hand itself is very complex and delicate in structure. Hand surgery requires a completely different surgical approach from a qualified hand and wrist surgeon whether treating fractures, arthritis or deformities. Hand surgery traditionally includes treatment of the entire hand, wrist and forearm.

Again, this whole region works as a single unit, and the dysfunction of a single part needs consideration of the whole. An additional year of training is required for those orthopedic surgeons seeking certification in hand and wrist surgery.

At some time in life, you may experience hand and wrist pain.
