This includes management of:
- Fractures and dislocations

Utilizing splinting, hand therapy and local injection, painful disorders of the hands are often treated without surgery. Complex dysfunction associated with stroke and neurologic disorders are the domain of the hand surgeon as well.
Correction of deformities, relief of pain, and restoration of mobility and function are accomplished through the latest medical treatments, including medication, well-honed surgical techniques and/or rigorous rehabilitation.
