Conditions We Treat at Fort Worth Hand Center
From the fingertips to the elbow, the Fort Worth Hand Center physicians treat everything from sports injuries and joint replacement to chronic conditions, age-related complications and trauma. Our patient-centered approach helps you find the treatment that works for your needs, goals and lifestyle.
Wrist and Hand Conditions We Treat
After a thorough examination and conversation, we explain the options for improving and healing any hand conditions. In many cases, non-surgical treatments can provide dramatic relief and increase mobility. Sometimes surgery gives you the best chance to improve the function of your hand, wrist, arm, or elbow. We take the time to make sure you understand your treatment options, the associated recovery periods and the role of therapy.
Trauma and Advanced Techniques
We provide expertise for hand, wrist, arm and elbow traumas, sports injuries and other extraordinary situations. We bring state-of-the-art techniques and proven procedures to the most challenging injuries. As physicians watchful of new innovations, equipment and ideas, we are prepared to serve patients’ wrist and hand conditions with severe trauma, complex surgery, and advanced treatment.
We treat all forms of chronic upper extremity conditions, many of which can be painful and restrict your lifestyle. From carpal tunnel syndrome, ganglion cysts, masses, osteoarthritis and tennis elbow to rarer problems such as Dupuytren’s contracture and joint disease, we offer the knowledge and skillset you can rely on for an appropriate treatment plan.
Whenever possible, mostly dependent on the specific wrist and hand conditions, we offer various treatment options, including non-surgical techniques such as injection, splinting, and/or therapy. If surgery is necessary, you can feel confident knowing that you are under the care of one of the best upper extremity orthopaedic specialists in the region for both minimally invasive procedures, as well as, traditional surgery. Our physicians will thoroughly explain all of your options so that the correct path is taken to return you to your active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
The hand, wrist, arm and elbow are critical to athletic performance. Whether you play professionally or play hard on the weekends, sports injuries present unique challenges and recovery objectives. Our physicians bring advanced sports medicine to the diagnosis and treatment of sports related injuries. We’ve served advanced athletes with wrist and hand conditions in the following sports from the many professional, collegiate and high school teams in the area: football, soccer, tennis, baseball, basketball, wrestling, lacrosse, hockey, gymnastics, dance, cheerleading, weightlifting, softball, martial arts, rugby, golf, skiing, skating and others.
It’s a simple fact: people get hurt at work…after all, most people spend the bulk of their waking hours at work, so statistically, injuries will happen. From factory workers who suffer repetitive motion injuries to construction workers who suffer traumatic injuries, the range of work-related injuries we treat is a wide one. With upper extremity related work injuries occurring regularly in every work force, the Fort Worth Hand Center staff is trained and knowledgeable so that we can assist our patients and referral sources.
