The hand and wrist are involved in essentially all daily activities. It’s therefore not surprising that these structures are often injured, whether from direct trauma or gradual wear and tear.
Our orthopedic hand surgeons are specialists in treating common traumatic injuries including finger fractures, wrist fractures, flexor or extensor tendon lacerations, digital nerve lacerations, partial finger amputations, or ligament tears of the wrist or fingers. These injuries often need to be managed in an urgent manner, so early evaluation by a physician is critical to obtaining the best outcome. Some of these injuries can be treated with immobilization, while others may require surgery to repair the injured structure.
