Hand & Wrist
Disorders affecting the hand and wrist commonly occur due to extensive use during daily activities. From playing sports to typing and cooking, we use our hands for nearly everything we do. Because of this constant motion, sprains, strains, and fractures commonly occur from injuries, overuse, or falls. Range of motion and grip strength are affected from trauma and disorders and are typically accompanied by unbearable pain. The doctors at Springfield Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute are here to help alleviate this pain, so you can go back to doing what makes you most happy.

Hand & Wrist Treatment
When trauma or injury requires surgery, our skilled hand specialists operate with precision using cutting-edge techniques such as arthroscopy. Arthroscopy is a medical technique in which our providers use a camera to operate in small areas, like the joints within the hand. Our innovative methods allow for careful navigation inside the hand and wrist, while preserving delicate nerves and surrounding tissues.
We then develop a post-operative care plan including physical therapy that can easily be followed to ensure proper healing is taking place while maximizing movement and function of your hands. Our goal is to restore mobility in the hand and wrist, while eliminating pain, so you can go back to playing sports and enjoying life as you see fit.
While microsurgery is an option for some, it may not be the best option for you. To find out which treatment is best for you and your injury or condition, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our expert orthopedic doctors. They’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your condition, and develop a personalized treatment plan that best suits you and your needs.
In the event that surgery is necessary, our doctors are highly skilled in minimally invasive surgical procedures that require less downtime and recovery than traditional surgical procedures. With minimally invasive surgery using arthroscopy, you can go back to doing what makes you happy with the full use of your hands quickly and smoothly.
