Hand & Upper Extremity Surgery
The hand is a complex structure comprised of a network of bones, joints, and ligaments that work together to provide dexterity and tact to the upper extremities. Because of the delicate nature of many orthopaedic hand conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, microfractures affecting the hand, wrist or forearm, or trigger finger, patients should consider a qualified hand surgeon trained to diagnose and treat problems related to hand surgery sheet the upper extremities.
Hand surgeons treat a variety of musculoskeletal disorders affecting the hands, wrists, and upper extremities, including, but not limited to: carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist pain, fractures, sports injuries, trigger finger and microvascular surgery. The Trenton Orthopaedic Group employs a number of fellowship trained orthopaedic hand surgeons and microsurgical experts, and is dedicated to providing the highest quality, compassionate care for its patients.
While surgery is often indicated to treat fractures or arthritic conditions affecting the hands and upper extremities, surgery should only be considered when activity modification or other conservative treatment methods, such as splinting, physical therapy, or injections into the joint, do not sufficiently alleviate pain and other limiting symptoms. An orthopaedic hand surgeon can determine if the musculoskeletal condition affecting the hand or upper extremity will require surgery, or whether noninvasive means can sufficiently alleviate pain and reduced mobility.
