Medical Treatments

Disorders of the hand and upper limb (including the wrist, forearm, elbow, arm, and shoulder) often require simple measures such as rest, alteration of activity, splinting, and therapy. This includes injury, arthritis, and congenital acquired problems.

Hand surgeons work closely with hand therapists (occupational or physical therapy trained) and general physical therapists to provide the best comprehensive treatment to meet the needs of our patients.

In addition, we work closely with other specialities, such as Rheumatology, Plastic Surgery, and other Orthopaedic subspecialties. This permits maximizing treatment of diseases and conditions which affect the body beyond the hand and upper limb.
