What is Hand Surgery?

By on August 10, 2016 under Hand Surgery

Our hands are busy all day and when they aren’t functioning at full capacity it means a serious reduction in our productivity and life quality. Through Hand Surgery many issues that reduce the strength and function of the wrist and fingers may be able to be restored. If you are dealing with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and have not received relief through rest or traditional carpal tunnel wrist braces, Hand Surgery may be your last and best option for achieving relief and restoring function. Rheumatoid Arthritis is a disabling disease that causes severe inflammation of the joints and Dupuytren’s Contracture is a disabling hand disorder of the palm and fingers—patients who struggle with both of these diseases may find some relief through Hand Surgery.
