Wrist And Hand Services

Hand and wrist pain can affect your daily activities and your ability to sleep well. Pain can prevent you from performing simple tasks, such as buttoning your clothes or opening a jar. Hands “falling asleep” can also affect your ability to get a good night’s rest. We want to help you overcome your pain and numbness and improve your quality of life.

Non-Surgical Treatment For Wrist And Hand

Our skilled wrist and hand specialists will evaluate you carefully and, if possible, suggest non-surgical treatment to reduce or eliminate your pain. These may include:

  • Steroid injections
  • Bracing and splinting
  • Occupational hand therapy
  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • If non-surgical treatment is not effective, or if your pain means you can no longer participate in your favorite activities or perform simple functions in your daily life, then it may be time to consider surgery.

Wrist And Hand Surgery

Sometimes surgery is the best option to relieve the pain in your hand or wrist.

These conditions sometimes lead to surgery:

Minimally Invasive Procedures

In some cases, minimally invasive procedures and in-office surgical procedures may be available. In these instances, by using small incisions and special instruments, we can minimize your pain and get you back to work and activities in a shorter period of time. Examples include:

  • Mini-open carpal tunnel surgery
  • Endoscopic procedures
  • Arthroscopic procedures
  • Wide-awake office surgeries under local anesthesia only

Arthroscopic procedures enable your surgeon to inspect, diagnose, and repair problems inside your wrist with just a few small incisions. During arthroscopy, your surgeon inserts a tiny camera called an arthroscope into your wrist through a small incision. The camera displays pictures on a television screen, and the surgeon uses these images to guide surgical instruments through other small incisions.

Like other minimally invasive procedures, arthroscopy often has some important benefits:

  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Less scarring
  • Less blood loss
