Hand Pain

Do you have pain in your hand, wrist, or fingers? Are they swollen, hot, cold, or burning? Many patients suffer from hand pain which is often caused by everyday overuse or the result of an injury. Hand surgery and wrist surgery is a highly specialized field with a unique set of conditions, treatments and rehabilitation procedures. SportsMED is able to offer hope to those suffering with painful or debilitating conditions of the hand, wrist, elbow, and forearm. Our hand surgeon sees many types of upper extremity and hand conditions such as, but not limited to, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, ganglion cysts, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy.

Due to microscopic and endoscopic surgical advances, many conditions can now be corrected in day surgery, without an overnight hospital stay.
