The hand consists of dozens of bones and joints, as well as ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, and cartilage that work together to perform routine, everyday tasks. The frequency in which we use our hands makes them prone to injuries, dislocations, and fractures. Repetitive motions while at work or participating in activities can lead to tendinitis, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome.
At OrthoNorcal Orthopedic Specialists, our specialty-trained orthopedic hand surgeon provides highly specialized care and treatment for hand injuries and conditions. This care includes, but is not limited to, tendon and nerve repair, carpal tunnel release (for carpal tunnel syndrome), De Quervain’s release, trigger finger release, ganglion excision, arthroplasty of the wrist, tendon and nerve reconstruction, compression and congenital reconstruction, and fracture repair.
