Hand, wrist and elbow
You rely on your hands, wrists, and elbows for many activities throughout the day. If you suffer from hand pain or lost mobility due to carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis or other wrist problems, you know how it can disrupt your life both at home and at work. Hand and wrist pain can keep you from caring for your family, earning a living and enjoying the daily activities that mean so much to you.
Surgery in the hand, wrist, and elbow is a specialized area of medicine because of the complex networks of nerves, blood vessels, muscles and tendons. That’s why you need a skilled hand surgeon by your side. The orthopedic surgeons at Community have years of experience in minimally-invasive upper extremity surgery, including the following:
- Carpal tunnel surgery
- Tendon transfer and repair
- Nerve repair
- Wrist fusion
- Reconstructive hand and wrist surgery
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes numbness, pain and tingling in the fingers, wrists and arms. Carpal tunnel syndrome results when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed and does not function properly. If you suspect that you have carpal tunnel syndrome, call 317.621.TEAM (8326) to schedule an appointment. Our staff and surgeons are well-versed in nonsurgical and surgical treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Wrist sprain or fracture
Wrist sprains or fractures most commonly result from falls onto an outstretched hand. If you have fallen and suspect that your wrist is injured, schedule a prompt appointment at Community Physician Network Orthopedic Specialty Care at 317.621.TEAM (8326). Our convenient onsite X-rays will help our orthopedic and hand specialists determine if there are any broken bones. If surgery is necessary, our highly-qualified hand surgeons have unmatched expertise in the field.
Finger and thumb conditions
Our hand surgeons have specialized training to perform delicate finger and thumb surgeries. We can treat a variety of finger and thumb conditions, from work-related finger and hand injuries, fractures, arthritis, infections and deformities to tendon and nerve injuries. Our expert hand surgeons will provide you with compassionate care and the best outcomes.
Tennis and golfer’s elbow
Tennis and golf are the favorite sports of many, but no one welcomes the painful elbow conditions that can result from repetitive motions. Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) or golfer’s elbow are uncomfortable conditions that affect the tendons at the elbow. If you are bothered by elbow pain, our orthopedic experts can help you get back in the game as soon as possible.
Cubital tunnel syndrome
Repetitive elbow movements, pressure, bone abnormalities, and swelling can all contribute to the pain, numbness, and tingling associated with cubital tunnel syndrome. Most cases of cubital tunnel syndrome are treated without surgery; however, our orthopedic surgeons will provide unparalleled care in the event you need surgical treatment.
