Hand care is the treatment of conditions and injuries of the bone and tissues in the hand and wrist.
Our orthopedic hand specialists provide expert care for a variety of hand conditions. These include hand surgery, tendonitis, arthritis, carpal tunnel and hand and arm rehabilitation.
Just a few of our hand treatments include:
Brachial plexus injuries
Brachial plexus nerves are responsible for sending signals that help control arm and hand movement. Injuries that impact these nerves can vary in severity with minor ones being common in contact sports.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common condition of the hand and wrist. The condition can be caused by many factors including genetics, variations in individual anatomy, medical conditions, and some job or recreational stressors. Marshfield Clinic employs physician specialists who are experts in treatment of CTS.
Dupuytren's contracture is a condition that may gradually develop over years. Knots of tissue form underneath the skin of your palm, leading to some of the fingers bending and making it hard for them to completely straighten out.
Flexor tendon lacerations
Seemingly small cuts to the forearm, hand or wrist may lead to more serious flexor tendon injuries. These injuries may make it difficult to move or bend finger and wrist muscles.
Ganglion cysts are most often found around the hand or wrist area and are noncancerous lumps. Treatment may involve draining the cyst or surgically removing it depending on the severity and location.
No matter what ailment you are experiencing around your wrist or hand, our multi-disciplinary team of specialists will work together to diagnose and treat your specific needs.
You may hear trigger finger also referred to as stenosing tenosynovitis. It is a painful condition where a finger gets stuck in a bent position and results in painful clicking when trying to straighten it back out.
Wrist or Hand surgery
If surgery to the hand or wrist area is determined to be the best treatment method, our hand and wrist surgeons will utilize the latest technology and surgical methods to help you get the best outcome possible.
