Andrews Institute Hand Center
The hand is one of the most used and complex parts of your body. Intricate in design and function, it represents an amazing work of anatomic engineering. The movement of tendons, bones, tissues and nerves in your hand allows you to grip and perform a wide variety of activities ranging from writing, preparing meals and dressing yourself to holding hands and taking part in hobbies such as gardening, golfing or creating works of art. Life would be drastically different without fully functional hands.
Because of how much we use them, hand injuries and conditions are fairly common and account for nearly 10 percent of hospital emergency room visits. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that approximately 110 thousand workers yearly lose time from work due to hand and finger injuries.
At the Andrews Institutes Hand Center, we understand that even the smallest hand injuries require expert medical attention. Our center is led by a team of caring, experienced orthopaedic physicians with specialized training in the management and care of simple and complex hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and upper extremity injuries and conditions including:
- Dupuytren’s Disease
- DeQuervain’s Tendonitis
- Cubital Tunnel Disease
- Trigger Finger
- Ganglion Cysts
- Nerve Compressions such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Sports injuries including fractures and dislocations
Our goal is to provide rapid and accurate initial evaluation and leading-edge treatment methods to minimize short- and long-term effects on the hand and upper limb. Our team offers cost-effective surgical and non-surgical treatment options for patients of all ages including on-site occupational therapy.
