Plastic Surgery: Hand and Wrist

Hand surgery may be performed to correct the effects of a traumatic injury, inflammatory disorders, or aging.  In recent years, many advances have been made to correct a wide variety of conditions that affect the hand and wrist.  Our team of plastic surgeons are equipped to address most common hand issues, with the goal to restore function of the upper extremity through complex surgical techniques.  Our surgeons are trained to evaluate and determine the best approach for each individual patient based on their expertise and the patient’s needs. Services include evaluation of hand and wrist injuries, outpatient and inpatient surgery, hand therapy and rehabilitation, and when possible non-surgical options.  Our hand surgeons work closely with occupational therapists to achieve an optimal post-operative result.
