Hand & Wrist

illustration of the hand and wristThe hands and wrists are the busiest joints in our body. Our hands and wrists are involved in nearly every daily activity, from gripping a glass to typing an email to scratching a bug bite. Similiar to the feet and ankles, hands and wrists have multiple bones with complex connections to nerves, ligaments and tendons - making our hands the most sensitive and useful parts of our bodies. Hands and wrists are susceptible to injury from accidents, misuse and overuse. When hand and wrist pain occurs, it makes daily living activities difficult and sometimes impossible.

Because of the complicated orthopaedics involved in the hand and wrist, you want to choose a physician with extensive training and knowledge of how to best care for your injury or condition.

The highly-trained Orthopaedic Surgeons at Rochester General offer non-surgical and surgical care to adults and children in the Greater Rochester NY region with hand and wrist injuries or disorders. Our board-certified physicians are fellowship-trained in hand surgery and microsurgery and have a high volume of experience - from minor to complex hand and wrist surgeries. When possible, our physicians use minimally-invasive techniques, such as endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery, to correct the problem that you're experiencing with your hands or wrists. 

Our hand and wrist areas of expertise include:

Arthritis Fingertip Injuries Sports Injuries
