Hand and Wrist

The human hand is very complex and delicate in structure. Hand surgery requires a totally different surgical approach whether treating fractures, arthritis, or deformities. Hand surgery traditionally includes treatment of the entire hand, wrist, and forearm. Again, this whole region works as a single unit, and the dysfunction of a single part needs consideration of the whole. An additional year of training (fellowship) is required for those surgeons seeking certification in hand surgery. The Hays Orthopedic Institute's fellowship-trained physicians treat conditions involving the bones, tendons, and muscles of the hands, wrist, and forearm. Under their experienced guidance, your recovery will be expertly diagnosed and carefully monitored from start to successful recovery.

Therapy may be necessary for any surgery involving the hand, wrist, or elbow. The objective at Hays Orthopedic Institute is to provide exercise and activities designed to help return the patient to an active, productive lifestyle.

If you are among the millions of Americans experiencing hand and upper extremity problems each year, finding expert care is all-important. Whether your condition is due to arthritis, a sports injury, an accident, or a congenital or work-related disorder, you can feel confident choosing Hays Orthopedic Institute for your care.
