Hand and Wrist

Your hands, wrists and fingers are your guides to the world,

the keys to your amazing talents, and your ways to navigate the everyday chores of life. They must always be kept in top running order.

Sometimes a disease or injury can hinder your hands’ ability to work the way you want them to. Pain, stiffness, numbness and tingling make it hard to grasp, feel, write, button and use the gross or fine motor skills most people take for granted.

Mercyhealth’s orthopedic specialists are trained to work on the delicate and vital structures of your hand, wrist or fingers if you’ve suffered a traumatic injury, such as a pinched nerve, broken bone, amputation or dislocation. Often hand injuries and other issues lead to both physical and occupational therapy.

If you are suffering aches or sharp pains or have trouble using your hands, wrists and fingers for small or large tasks, you may need to see a specialist at Mercyhealth Orthopedic Center of Excellence for:

  • Numbness or tingling in the hands and fingers, caused by carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Pain and stiffness from arthritis
  • Repetitive stress injuries

Mercyhealth Orthopedic Center of Excellence offers a range of treatments from conservative to more invasive: physical therapy, orthopedic devices, injection therapies and reconstruction surgery.
