The hand is a delicate area of the human body that is made up of bone, joints, ligaments (connective tissue), tendons (connects muscle to bone), muscles, nerves (send electrical impulses to the brain and spinal cord), skin, and blood vessels. These elements must all be in good working order for your hand to function properly. The relationship between all these structures is delicate and precise. An injury or disease can affect any or all of these structures and impair the use of your hand.
Our team has developed expert knowledge in pediatric and adult upper extremity (arm) and hand surgery. Our fellowship-trained and certified hand and plastic surgeons can provide comprehensive care for surgery due to trauma (injury), congenital (present from birth), and elective (cosmetic) reasons. When needed, we can coordinate your care with experts in other specialties, including orthopaedics and sports medicine.
