At Iowa Specialty Hospital, our Hand Surgery Providers are specialized in the surgical repair of a variety of hand conditions and diseases.
The hand consists of dozens of bones and joints, as well as ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, and cartilage, that work together to perform routine, everyday tasks. The frequency with which we use our hands makes them more prone to injuries, dislocations, and fractures. Repetitive motions while at work or while participating in activities can lead to tendonitis, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome.
An orthopedic hand surgeon is a hand specialist who is qualified to diagnose and treat issues regarding the hand, wrist, and forearm. They provide highly specialized care and treatment for hand injuries and conditions such as tendon and nerve damage repair, carpal tunnel release (carpal tunnel syndrome treatment), de Quervain’s release, trigger finger release surgery, ganglion excision, wrist arthroscopy, tendon and nerve reconstruction, compression and congenital reconstruction, and fracture repair.
