Hand and wrist conditions and injuries
Hand and wrist conditions can result from a variety of causes, including overuse, trauma, sports injuries, and underlying medical conditions. Microvascular conditions, on the other hand, involve the smallest blood vessels in your body and can affect various organs, including the hands and wrists. These conditions can lead to pain, swelling, numbness, and reduced mobility.
Our team of board-certified hand and wrist specialists is well-versed in diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome: A common condition characterized by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist, causing numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand.
- Arthritis: Inflammation of the joints in the hand and wrist, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.
- Tendinitis: Inflammation or irritation of the tendons in the hand and wrist, resulting in pain and restricted movement.
- Dupuytren's contracture: A condition that causes the fingers to bend inward toward the palm, making it difficult to straighten them.
- Fractures and dislocations: Traumatic injuries to the bones and joints in the hand and wrist that may require surgical intervention, including microvascular surgery to restore blood flow to the tissues.
