Hand & Upper Extremity
There are 206 bones in the adult body and 27 of them are in the hand and wrist. So it is understandable that most people will suffer a broken bone to the hand or wrist during their lifetime. These injuries can be debilitating since they can inhibit normal functions of the hand, while adversely impacting normal, daily activities. The frequency of hand and wrist use allows for a constant opportunity for injury.
Most disorders of the hand and wrist can be treated non-surgically with splints, injections or physical therapy. However, traumatic injuries to the hand can cause nerve, artery, vein, muscle, tendon, ligament and joint cartilage problems. Sometimes more severe injuries will require joint replacement.
While there are numerous elbow problems and conditions, tennis elbow seems to be the most common and well known. Many elbow conditions can be treated conservatively without surgery. When surgery is needed, minimally invasive arthroscopy permits the orthopedist to treat the problem resulting in small incisions, less pain and an early return to activities.
Utilizing the advancement of medicine and technology, Sarasota Orthopedic Associates’ hand, wrist and elbow specialists can effectively treat the patient’s problems. Our orthopedists' experience-based knowledge allows them to optimize recovery and maximum function with the best possible outcome.
