Hand/wrist surgery involves repairing or reconstructing damaged bones, ligaments, tendons, or joints. Procedures may include arthroscopy, joint replacement, fracture fixation, or tendon repair. The surgical approach depends on the patient’s specific condition and the surgeon’s expertise.

Recovery from hand/wrist surgery typically involves a period of immobilization, followed by physical therapy to regain strength and mobility. Pain management and wound care are essential during this time. The recovery duration varies depending on the specific procedure and individual factors.

We utilize advanced diagnostic techniques and cutting-edge surgical procedures and collaborate with physical therapists to ensure optimal recovery outcomes. Also, our team of orthopedic surgeons is all fellowship-trained, which means they have completed additional training in this area.
