Hand & Upper Extremity Treatments
At University Orthopedic Care, we understand the impact that hand or upper extremity conditions like arthritis can have on a patient’s daily life. Our team of experts is committed to providing comprehensive, personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs. Our team also understands the hassles that come with invasive surgical procedures. When possible, our providers prefer to avoid surgery. We prioritize non-surgical treatment options that are designed to alleviate pain, enhance mobility, and improve quality of life, ensuring our patients can return to their regular activities with minimal disruption.
When surgery is required for our patients to recover from their condition, our skilled and specially-trained surgeons offer a minimally invasive option – arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic surgery, including arthroscopic surgery of the wrist, involves using a small camera to guide the surgeon throughout the procedure. This allows our physicians to use smaller incision sites and allows our patients to have a smoother, quicker recovery period. Arthroscopic wrist surgery may be necessary for those who suffer from ganglion cysts, a wrist fracture, or carpal tunnel syndrome.
