A functional hand and fingers are something most of us take for granted, that is until it becomes affected by injury or disease.
The main symptoms people present with are pain, loss of function, and deformity. OSV surgeons provide comprehensive evaluation and management for a wide range of hand, wrist, and elbow conditions.
Common injuries and conditions include fractures, dislocations, ligament and tendon damage, arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Dupuytren’s Disease.
Orthopaedic injuries include any injury to the musculoskeletal system. These injuries relating to the bones and joints are often the result of a sporting injury, accident, or trauma to the body. From elite athletes and sporting greats, children, the elderly, OSV surgeons have helped thousands of patients regain their freedom and quality of life from these types of injuries.
