Specialized Plan of Care

Throughout the regions, orthopedic surgeons who specialize in hand extremities offer patients exceptional care for injuries, deformities, sports injuries, fractures, osteoarthritis and other conditions. With improved techniques, hand surgeons have more options to offer patients for treatment of their hand pain. The patient and surgeon work together to create an individualized treatment plan that may include both non-surgical and surgical plans of care. As with any treatment plan, the goal is to restore as much function as possible. Most hand procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and patients are able to recover at home.
