Hand, Wrist & Elbow

The Hand, Wrist and Elbow Division at brings state-of-the-art diagnosis, treatment and care for upper extremity disorders.

Specially trained and board certified physicians and their support staff use state-of-the-art procedures to diagnose, manage and correct conditions which can literally run from the fingertips to the elbow.

Treatment of the hand, wrist and elbow is a highly specialized field that deals with a broad set of conditions and symptoms. Many of these are treated with non- surgical approaches such as medications, injections, and therapy.

When surgery is indicated, advanced and minimally invasive procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and without a hospital stay.

Specifically, we treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions that include:

  • Tendon problems such as tennis elbow, acute sports injuries and tendon lacerations
  • Trauma and fractures of bones from the elbow to the small bones in the hand
  • Correction of arthritis and its deformities
  • Nerve compression conditions including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Severed nerves
  • Sprains
  • Dislocations
