If you suffer from a hand impairment, reconstructive surgery of the hand at Dr. Taylor’s office may be an excellent solution to your medical condition. This specialized surgery can treat diseases that cause persistent pain and prohibit strength, flexibility and function of your wrists and fingers.
Hand reconstruction surgery in Fayetteville, Arkansas, seeks to restore a near-normal function to the fingers and hands, which alters the trauma injury or corrects abnormalities that were present at birth. More specifically, hand reconstruction can help treat the follow conditions:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This condition is caused by pressure to the median nerve within the wrist, or “carpal tunnel.” Common symptoms of carpal tunnel may include pain, tingling sensations, numbness of the fingers, weakness or aching. Carpal tunnel syndrome is associated to many other medical conditions, such as repetitive motion, overuse, fluid retention during pregnancy, injury to the nerve in the carpal tunnel, or rheumatoid arthritis.
This disabling condition can cause severe inflammation in any joint of the body. Specifically in the hand, it can lead to the deformation of the fingers or restrict proper movement.
Another disabling hand disorder where thick, scar-like tissue bands form within the palm and may extend towards the fingers. This condition can lead to restricted hand movement, or the bending of fingers into an abnormal position.
