Hand & extremity surgery
Surgical care options includes individualized treatment plans for:
Carpal tunnel syndrome – This is a condition in which there is too much pressure on a nerve in the wrist (median nerve) that allows feeling and movement to parts of the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to numbness, tingling, weakness or muscle damage in the hand and fingers.
Dupuytren’s disease – This is a painless thickening and tightening (contracture) of tissue beneath the skin on the palm of the hand and fingers.
Hand injuries – Injuries to the hand may include cuts, burns, fractures, ruptured ligaments and dislocations.
Tendonitis – This is a condition that causes pain and swelling of the tendons (the tissue that attaches muscle to bone).
Trigger finger (stenosing tenosynovitis) – This is an often painful condition when one of your fingers gets stuck in a bent position and then straightens with a snap.
