Diagnosis and Treatment
- Patients with congenital, neuromuscular, sports-related, oncologic and traumatic or post-traumatic conditions of the upper extremity receive multidisciplinary care involving splinting, casting and reconstructive surgery.
- Advanced techniques, including state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging equipment, allow our radiologists and hand surgeons to view images quickly and to begin treatment as soon as possible. Diagnostic tests include angiography, magnetic resonance imaging, x-ray and electromyography.
- Individualized treatment strategy based on the severity of the condition and how it affects daily activities.
- Emergency and urgent care available for a wide variety of complex fractures and soft tissue injuries to the hand, elbow and upper extremity
