Upper Extremity & Hand

Upper Extremity

From the shoulder to the hand, upper extremity injuries and conditions can be very significant in their impact on your ability to perform at work, home, and play.

All of these (Shoulder, Elbow, and Wrist) are complex and require qualified attention when problems occur.


Most of us are very dependent on our hands. Painful or non-functioning hands or fingers can have a significant impact on our quality of life. We use our hands to help us eat, dress, play, earn a living, and communicate. The list is endless. To accomplish these tasks or activities, our hands must provide movement (both fine and gross), grasping, and sensation.

When a problem occurs in the hand, all the different types of tissues (muscles, tendons, bones, and nerves) that make up a functioning hand need to be considered.

Our orthopaedists can help you when one or more of these requires attention.
