Hand & Foot Surgery

Hand surgery involves injuries and problems of the nerves, tendons, bones, and ligaments of the hand and wrist. Hand problems may be painful and limit such things as writing or typing, but most people don’t walk on their hands.

Foot surgery involves treating injuries and problems derived from musculoskeletal trauma. We treat everything from the disruption of fibers of the lateral ankle ligaments to extreme trauma such as crushing and twisting injuries.

Hand/Wrist Surgery

Surgery of the hand and wrist includes the treatment of multiple problems that, while they may involve small structures, can be tremendously disabling. One does not usually appreciate the beauty, importance and function of the hand until they have lost something from an injury or disease process.

Common problems which may benefit from surgery include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome/Nerve Entrapment Syndromes
  • Ganglions
  • Trigger Fingers
  • Fractures/Dislocations
  • Tendon Lacerations
  • Infections
  • Foreign Bodies

Foot/Ankle Surgery

Your feet are often ignored and abused; you don’t realize how much you depend on your feet until you can’t walk, not to mention run, without pain.

Common problems which may benefit from surgery include:

  • Bunions
  • Morton’s Neuromas
  • Hammer Toes
  • Fractures of the Ankle and Foot
  • Ankle Instability
  • Tendinitis

Most foot surgery can be done as an outpatient. However, walking is commonly limited for three to six weeks. It may take three months or more to return to unrestricted activity.
