Hands are delicate instruments that can assist with fine motor skills. This requires a board-certified surgeon with specialized training in microsurgical techniques specifically for the hand to ensure a functional and aesthetically-pleasing outcome. Our sophisticated hand surgeons can treat such maladies as carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren's contractures, nerve injuries and osteoarthritis, as well as many unsightly conditions, including ganglions, arthritic spurs, protruding veins and skin blemishes.
The decision to treat and the recommended type of treatment is based primarily on the severity of symptoms. In the case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, for example, in very mild cases (occasional hand numbness) no treatment is necessary. Mild or moderate symptoms can usually be reduced or eliminated by wearing wrist splints at night. Moderate to severe symptoms often require surgery.
If you have any concerns regarding your hands – tingling, numbness, weakness, swelling, joint pain, inability to grasp small objects or other symptoms – please call 203-791-9661 to schedule a consultation.
