About a quarter of the motor cortex in the human brain – the part of the brain which controls all movement in the body – is devoted to the muscles of the hands. It’s one of the most complex parts of the body, and also one of the most common places for injuries and issues.
The board-certified physicians at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine specialize in the complicated arrangement of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons that make up the structures of the hand. Our doctors’ hand and upper extremity expertise is in nerve compression, overuse, repetitive injuries, sports injuries and arthritis of the upper extremity.
Our physicians perform a wide range of surgical procedures to address injuries or other conditions that affect the hand or other upper extremities, including surgeries for:
- Hand arthroplasty
- Minimally invasive surgeries, including endoscopic carpal tunnel release and wrist surgery.
For more information on diseases and conditions that affect the hand and wrist, visit the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons’ website or schedule your appointment at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine today.
