Hand and Wrist
The most common symptom of any orthopedic condition is excruciating pain that prevents a patient from carrying on daily tasks and getting a full night’s rest. The hand and wrist orthopaedic specialists at The Nebraska Medical Center are specially trained to treat the most complex fractures, bone and joint infections, nonunions and deformities as well as more common hand and wrist problems.
Common conditions of the hand and wrist include:
- Finger and Wrist Fracture
- Fingertip Amputations
- Mallett (Baseball) Finger
- Nerve Compression and Injury
- Congenital Hand Deformities
- Distal Radius (Colles’) Fracture
- Scaphoid Fracture
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tendon Injuries
Persistent pain and loss of hand and wrist functionality are signs which may indicate the need to see a hand and wrist specialist. Possible treatments may include bone removal, revision surgery replacement, joint reconstruction or fusion surgery. Surgical treatment often results in less pain, quicker recovery and regaining full range of motion.
