Hand surgery


Hand problems can make everyday tasks difficult. Our surgeons are experts in treating the delicate structures of the hands and wrists.

Find care


Injuries and problems of all kinds can affect the hands. Our surgeons provide complete care from diagnosis to treatment, which includes nonsurgical and surgical options. If surgery is needed, we often do arthroscopic procedures, which use small incisions.

Our services also include electrodiagnostic testing, which measures the electrical activity in the muscles and nerves of the hands. This helps us make an accurate diagnosis.

Conditions treated

We treat conditions from the simple to the complex:

  • Arthritis of the hand, thumb or wrist
  • Boutonniere deformity (an injury that keeps a finger from straightening)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (pressure on a nerve in the hand, causing numbness and weakness)
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome (an injury to a nerve that runs through the elbow; known as the “funny bone”)
  • Duptryen’s contracture (tightening or thickening of the skin under the palm of the hand)
  • Fingertip injuries
  • Fractures and sprains
  • Flexor tendon injuries (injuries that make it impossible to bend the fingers)
  • Kienbock’s disease (lack of blood supply to a bone in the wrist)
  • Ganglion cyst (noncancerous lumps on the wrists or hands)
  • Ligament injuries (injuries to the tissue that connects bones to one another)
  • Mallet finger (an injury to the end of a finger that causes it to bend toward the palm)
  • Smartphone tendonitis (problems with the thumbs and wrists due to smartphone use)
  • Trigger finger (a finger gets stuck in a bent position)
