OUR HANDS

Our hands serve many purposes. Hands help us eat, dress, earn a living, create art, and do many other activities. To do these activities, our hands require sensation and movement, such as joint motion, tendon gliding and muscle contraction. When a problem takes place in the hand, expert care must be given to all the different types of tissues that make function of the hand possible.

WHAT IS A HAND SURGEON?

Hand surgery is the field of medicine that treats with problems of the hand, wrist, and forearm. Hand surgeons care for these problems both with and without surgery. They are specialty trained to operate when necessary, but may prescribe medications and therapy, or administer therapeutic injections when needed.

Hand surgeons are orthopedic, plastic or general surgeons who have additional training in surgery of the hand. To become members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, hand surgeons must take a full year of additional training after their primary specialty has been completed. This fellowship training is dedicated solely to treating injuries and diseases of the hand and upper extremity.
