The hand is a unique area of the human body made up of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels. When a problem arises, care must be given to all the different types of tissues that make the hand function. Our hand surgeons also have expertise with problems of the wrist, elbow, arm, and shoulder. Most patients are treated with non-surgical care first. This could be injections, medications, splinting, casting, or physical or occupational therapy.
