Upper extremity & hand surgery restores critical function

Your shoulders, wrists and hands are vitally important to everything you do. The relationship between all those joints, muscles, tendons and nerves means that an injury or disease can easily impair your ability to function normally. When you injure one of those structures, you need specialized orthopaedic care that’s experienced in the dynamics of shoulder, hand and wrist problems, such as:

  • Shoulder pain & injuries (rotator cuff tear, labrum tears), impingement
  • Total shoulder replacement
  • Reverse shoulder replacement
  • Elbow tendonitis (Tommy John surgery)
  • Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Trigger finger
  • Arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis)
  • Hand, wrist & forearm injuries/trauma
  • Tendon & nerve lacerations
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • DeQuervain’s disease
  • Ganglion cysts
  • Sprains & strains
  • Congenital deformities

A conservative approach to care means less surgery

Once we diagnose the cause of your problem, we can relieve the pain and restore lost function – often with proven noninvasive, nonsurgical therapies. Nonsurgical treatments include medications, injection therapy and physical therapy. Therapeutic exercise and custom splints also help structures heal properly while preventing further injury. But when surgery is the best or only option, we use the latest repair and reconstruction techniques.

Our board-certified or board-eligible orthopedic surgeons always look for the most conservative treatment options to achieve the best possible results for each patient. We hope you will call upon us any time you have a concern.
