Our hands are an intricate arrangement of bone, muscle, nerves, and other tissues. They are also one of the more injured parts of the body due to their nearly constant use. Accidental damage can easily break delicate bones, and our hands are susceptible to diseases such as Dupuytren's that can impair our use of them. When your hands hurt or have suffered any damage, a hand surgeon should be consulted to correct any damage and regain function.


Animal and Human Bites
Bites to the hand can easily become infected. If left untreated, tissue loss is a possibility and other severe consequences can occur. Every bite should be promptly examined by a doctor, who can cleanse the wound much better than you can at home.

Brachial Plexus Injury
Any interruption to this network of nerves that run from the spinal cord to the tips of the fingers can cause loss of sensation. The nerves run close to the skin through the palm and can be easily cut. Surgery can often repair severed nerves and restore feeling.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This condition, which often arises from repetitive motions, can produce pain throughout the hand when the wrist is used. Surgery can repair the tunnel through which the tendon moves, or splints or other non-surgical procedures can help alleviate the symptoms.

Congenital Hand Differences
Hands may not form properly when the fetus develops from a variety of causes. Many atypical results can be corrected through surgery, and cosmetic differences from normal can be removed.

De Quervain's Tendonitis
Also called tenosynovitis, this condition results when the tendons located at the base of the thumb become irritated. It is frequently associated with new mothers who have to use their hands in new or awkward ways to care for an infant.

Dupuytren's Disease
The first symptom of this disease is frequently lumps or pits that appear in the palm, followed by the appearance of cords that run to the middle finger or thumb and cause these to bend inward. Hand surgery, if needed, can often correct the problem and restore most use of the hand.

Extensor Tendon Injuries
These tendons lay just below the skin and are used when we straighten our fingers. This location makes them susceptible to cuts and other injuries, but a hand surgeon may be able to repair them if they've been severed or damaged.

Fireworks Accident
Holding lit fireworks in your hand is a recipe for disaster. Explosives can unexpectedly and permanently destroy bones and the soft tissues of the hand. When it comes time to celebrate, leave it to the professionals!

Flexor Tendon Injuries
When these tendons are cut or damaged, it may be painful or impossible to move your fingers. If a tendon has been cut in an accident, it may be repairable by a hand surgeon.

Hand Fractures
We use our hands almost constantly, and often in dangerous ways or places. The many bones in our hands are all subject to breaking, and any crushing blow may break one or more of them. If any severe blow is experienced, a hand doctor should examine your hand to determine the extent of damage.

Hand Infections
Hands are subject to a number of infections. Some of these come from environmental sources and others can appear after any cut or injury. You should have any hand infection immediately examined by a hand doctor, who may be able to save sensitive tissues from permanent damage.

Nerve Injuries of the Hand
Our hands have more nerve endings per square inch than any other part of our bodies. Any of these nerves or the sheaths they travel through can be cut, but surgery on them can often restore loss sensations.

Osteoarthritis of the Hand
When arthritis strikes any of the connections between any of the bones in the hand, pain, swelling, and stiffness can result. Any arthritis in the hand is very noticeable, primarily because our hands are used so often. After examining your hand, your hand doctor may recommend any of a variety of treatments, ranging from modifying hand movements, through splints, and up to surgery.

Prosthetics and Amputation
Hand replacement can often provide the return of necessary movements and functions. Prosthetic devices can be cosmetically excellent and can even include paintable nails.

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
The causes of this condition are frequently a mystery, but its painful sensations have to be treated seriously. Often the result of a misfiring nerve that continually or frequently sends a signal indicating excessive heat or pain, treatment is possible.

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Swollen, painful joints can often be treated. Your hand doctor can examine your hand and determine the best course of action for restoring active use of your hands and a return to a full, quality life.

Tendon Transfer Surgery
When a cut or damaged tendon cannot be fixed, it is sometimes possible to replace its lost function. In this procedure, the bone that can no longer be moved by the injured tendon receives a working one and function is restored.

Vascular Disorders
Any injury to the system of veins and arteries can have serious consequences. Both surgical and non-surgical means can be used to repair or replace damaged tissues.
