Hand & Wrist

You might not know it, but each of your hands and wrists are made up of twenty seven bones that form over a dozen small, but important joints. This complex structure is essential to how we do almost everything including working and playing. The health and function of our hands depends on bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons that, when working properly, allow you to type, shake a friend’s hand, grip a baseball or open a door. However, if any of those structures is not functioning properly, the ability to do common tasks can be incredibly difficult. To treat a patient’s hand or wrist condition properly, an Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon needs to be intensely familiar with the different structure of the hand and wrist.
