Why Visit a Hand Surgeon

The hand is a unique area of the human body that is made up of bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. These elements must all be in good working order for the hand to function well. The relationship between all these structures is delicate and refined. An injury or disease can affect any or all of these structures and impair the use of the hand.

Hand surgery specialists use both a surgical and non-surgical approach to your treatment. Only a qualified hand surgeon is trained to diagnose and treat all problems related to the hand, wrist and forearm.

A qualified hand surgeon is specially trained to diagnose and treat all problems related to the hand, wrist and forearm. Hand surgeons are specialists devoted to hand care. Not all problems treated by a hand surgeon need surgery and non-surgical treatments, such as medication, splints, therapy, and injections are often recommended. The aim of treating hand conditions is to improve the lives of those who suffer from injuries or disorders of the hand and upper extremity.
