A hand surgeon is a highly skilled specialist who treats and diagnoses a wide range of problems involving the hand, wrist, and forearm. The hand is an intricate and delicate part of our body and any injury or problem can impact your ability to perform daily activities and enjoy your life.

Hand surgeons are specialty trained Orthopaedic, Plastic, and General Surgeons who focus on managing problems involving the hand, wrist, and forearm. Hand surgeons have additional training and Specialty Board Certification in Hand Surgery.

Common injuries and problems that our Hand Surgeons at Neuroscience and Spine Associates treat include:

  • Sports injuries to both the hand and wrist
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendinitis
  • Arthritis
  • Fractures and ligament injuries of the hand, forearm, and wrist
  • Tennis elbow
  • Ganglion cysts

Our hand surgeons treat many hand and wrist problems without surgery. This includes cortisone and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, splinting, and hand therapy. When conservative measures fail, they offer surgical treatments to improve your pain and quality of life.
