Nonsurgical Care 

Whenever possible, we start your care with nonsurgical treatment. This includes: 

  • Splints that protect your joints.

  • Medications, such as steroid injections, to ease pain.

Surgical Care 

In some cases, you may need surgery to treat a hand or wrist condition. Our surgeons have experience performing the following procedures: 

  • Carpal tunnel release
