Peripheral Nerve Releases
A nerve release is a surgical procedure designed to treat areas of nerve compression. Common sites include: the carpal tunnel, the cubital tunnel, the radial tunnel, etc.
These are noncancerous lesions that emanate from joint spaces or tendon sheaths. They can often interfere with movement and function by compressing nearby structures. Surgery to remove these lesions can bring significant relief.
Also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, a finger can get stuck in a bent position due to severe inflammation. Steroid injections and/or surgery can bring relief to this often very painful condition.
This hereditary condition occurs when the fascia in the palm of the hand thickens and becomes tight, causing fingers to stiffen and curl toward the palm. Injections and surgery can be used to address this chronic and progressive disease process.
Hand & Wrist Arthritis
Often painful and debilitating, osteoarthritis occurs when bony surfaces have succumbed to chronic wear and tear. Surgical treatment can involve removal of these painful surfaces or fusion to prevent painful motion.
Open wounds of the hand can significantly impact function. Hand coverage procedures expedite healing of these wounds while maintaining the hand’s elegant and critical functions.
Traumatic nerve injuries can be devastating. Nerve repair or grafting can help restore critical functions.
Various conditions can lead to hand joint stiffness and immobility. Surgical intervention can help restore critical hand motion.
Hand & Finger Fractures
Stabilization procedures often involving hardware placement are used to restore critical hand form and function.
A tendon transfer is surgical procedure that replaces the function of a non-functioning tendon with healthy nearby tendons.
Tendon & Ligament Injuries
A major tendon or ligament injury may require surgery to repair the injured structures to support stability and facilitate movement.
On occasion, certain conditions or injuries necessitate amputation procedures to protect the patient’s health and return them to activities of daily living.
Treatment of Hand Infections
These can be very severe and it is important that they are carefully and thoroughly treated to protect critical structures.
