Stony Point Surgery Center Surgeons

Specialty - Hand

Your hand is a complex machine of bones, muscles, nerves, ligaments and skin. It needs to be able to make both large and small movements, grasp and hold, point, and to do whatever you need it to do without stiffness or pain. Hands are remarkably strong and sturdy, but, like any other part of your body, may be injured by accident or have pain from other conditions such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome. The treatment team is headed by a hand surgeon, trained in this subspecialty. Medications and physical therapy provided by specially-trained hand therapists are usually given first – often with success -- and the delicate and detailed surgery of the hand is provided when needed.

    Arthritis occurs when your joints become inflamed. Typically symptoms worsen with age. Treatment depends on the type of arthritis.

    Carpal Tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched nerve in your wrist. The carpel tunnel is a passageway that protects a main nerve and several tendons to your hand. When this nerve is compressed, or pinched, symptoms such as numbness and tingling occur.

    A broken wrist or hand occurs when there is a break or crack in one of the bones. This type of fracture commonly occurs when people try to catch themselves during a fall. Treatment needs to occur as soon as possible, or the bones may not heal properly which can result in inability to perform everyday activities.

    Dislocation occurs when there is an injury to a joint, and the ends of your bones are forced from their normal positions.
