Preservation of Your Hand and Wrist

Hand and wrist conditions can be degenerative. That means the earlier you begin treatment, the better your prognosis will be. We will develop a personalized care plan for you making every attempt to utilize nonsurgical options such as anti-inflammatory medicine, ice, heat, and massage.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common hand/wrist ailments we see. It can be a very painful condition that involves burning, tingling and pain in the fingers and hand. The pain can sometimes be treated with ice or a brace, but in some cases surgery is required. Surgery for CTS involves cutting the transverse carpal ligament to relieve pressure on the median nerve. Our doctors will walk you through every detail of the surgery if we determine a surgical treatment is best for you.
