Our hands serve many purposes. Hands help us eat, dress, write, earn a living, create art, and do many other activities. To function, our hands require sensation and movement in the joints, tendons and muscles. . When a problem takes place in the hand, care must be given to all the different types of tissues that make function of the hand possible.
Hand surgery is the field of medicine that deals with problems of the hand, wrist, and forearm. Hand surgeons care for these problems with and without surgery. They are specially trained to operate when necessary. Many hand surgeons are also experts in diagnosing and caring for shoulder and elbow problems.
Why visit a hand surgeon?
If you have pain in your fingers, hand, wrist or arm, or have other upper-extremity related concerns, you may want to consult a hand surgeon. Because many hand surgeons devote most of their time to examining, treating and studying the hand, they are specialists in hand care.
Not every visit to a hand surgeon results in hand surgery.
Hand surgeons often recommend non-surgical treatment options, including hand therapy, a combination of physical and occupational therapy to restore movement and reduce or eliminate pain.
