Hand Surgery

Experts in hand and upper extremity surgery.

Surgery may be recommended for a variety of orthopaedic conditions, including carpal tunnel, rheumatoid arthritis, Dupuytren’s contracture, and ganglion cysts. Most conditions affecting the hand, wrist, and fingers can be treated conservatively, using nonsurgical options such as medications and physical therapy. However, hand surgery might be an option if your condition doesn’t improve after several attempts at nonsurgical treatment.

At Florida Medical Clinic, we understand that there is no single option that’s right for every patient. The hand contains 29 different bones, more than 100 ligaments, 34 muscles, and nearly 50 different nerves. As such, designing an appropriate treatment plan requires careful consideration of the hand’s structure and your unique diagnosis.

The orthopaedic specialists at Florida Medical Clinic will help explain various treatment options, from conservative therapies to minimally invasive surgery and everything in between. Where hand surgery is the most appropriate choice, our team will:

Help you select the procedure that has the most potential benefits and the fewest potential risks
Explain what sort of adjustments will be necessary after surgery, if any, and help you set realistic expectations for your recovery
Provide a comprehensive plan for the weeks and months following the procedure, including recommendations for physical therapy and other options to improve range of motion and reduce pain

The Florida Medical Clinic team includes a number of highly experienced orthopaedic surgeons, including several who specialize in hand surgery. We perform joint (knuckle) replacement procedures, nerve and tendon repair procedures, minimally invasive arthroplasties, and other hand operations with considerable frequency, giving us the expertise necessary to get you the individualized care you deserve.
