OUR HANDS

Our hands serve many purposes. Hands help us eat, dress, write, earn a living, create art, and do many other activities. They even help the blind to read and the mute to speak! Our hands are unique; they are our tools for living.

To perform various tasks and activities of daily living, our hands require sensation and movement, such as joint motion, tendon gliding, and muscle contraction. All these should occur in a smooth and coordinated manner. When a problem occurs in the hand, care must be given to all the different types of tissues that make function of the hand possible.

Injuries and diseases of the hand range from uncomfortable to incapacitating. They require special care to restore form and function to the injured or deformed hand. Hand Surgeons are specifically trained to provide that care

WHAT IS HAND SURGERY?

• Hand surgery is the field of medicine that deals with problems of the hand, wrist and forearm.
• Hand surgeons care for these problems without surgery, and they are specially trained to operate when necessary.
• Many hand surgeons are also experts in diagnosing and caring for shoulder and elbow problems. In other words, they are trained in comprehensive care of the entire upper extremity.
• Hand surgeons are orthopedic, plastic or general surgeons who have additional training in surgery of the hand.
• Four talented and extensively trained Hand Surgeons at the Hand Surgery Clinics have dedicated their careers to problems of the hands and are committed to helping you
