Hand & Wrist Specialists

Southeast Orthopedic Specialists realizes the importance of your hands. When properly functioning, our hands allow us to do so much. Their ability to perform rapid and precise movements allows us to play the piano, violin or guitar, and their strength can allow us to operate a jackhammer, lift heavy weights, or play competitive sports. Their delicate sensibility allows us to read Braille, determine subtle differences in textures and temperatures, and convey affection to a loved one.

Underneath the surface of our hands is one of the most intricate networks of bones, ligaments, nerves, muscles and tendons, all of which must move and function in a precise and harmonious manner. When injury or disease occurs, expert care is needed to restore our hands to their fullest potential.

Trauma, arthritis, carpal tunnel, and a myriad of other conditions can afflict your upper extremities, causing pain and affecting your quality of life. You can feel confident in the abilities of your Southeast Orthopedic Specialists hand surgeon.
