Hand Surgery

We provide hand surgery procedures to address the following conditions and areas:

  • Arthritis of the thumb
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome—producing numbness, tingling or pain in the fingers, hand or wrist
  • Dupuytren’s contracture—causing the ring and small finger to bend in toward the palm
  • Extensor tendon injuries—involving the tendons that allow for extension of the hand or fingers
  • Flexor tendon injuries—involving the tendons that allow for cupping the hand or bending the thumb or fingers toward the palm
  • Flexion contracture—involving a finger bent at a joint and “stuck” in that position
  • Ganglion cyst—a non-cancerous soft tissue mass in the hand or wrist that is filled with fluid
  • Lateral epicondylitis—also known as “tennis elbow,” a condition which causes elbow pain with activities involving pushing, pulling, grasping or lifting
  • Mallet finger—involving a ruptured tendon that causes a permanent bend at the fingertip
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Skier’s thumb—resulting from trauma to a ligament of thumb that causes side-to-side instability of movement of the thumb
  • Trigger finger—involving stiffness and difficulty bending a finger, which may progress to the point where the finger becomes “stuck” in one position
