The Hand Surgery Program at The Polyclinic provides comprehensive care in diagnosing and treating all problems in the hand and wrist.

Experts in Hand Surgery

The hand is made up of bone, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, skin, and blood vessels.  The relationship between these structures is delicate and requires special expertise.  An injury or disease affecting any or all of these structures can impair the use of your hand. Our qualified, board certified hand surgeons are specially trained to treat the delicate and complex structure of the hand and wrist. We have the orthopedic expertise needed to diagnose and treat problems of the hand and wrist, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome and peripheral nerve compression
  • Dupytren’s contracture  
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Ganglion cysts
  • Joint replacement/reconstruction
  • Ligament injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Trigger finger
  • Wrist pain
