What is Hand Surgery?

Our hands serve many purposes. Hands help us eat, dress, write, earn a living, create art, and do many other activities. They even help the blind to read and the mute to speak.
To do these tasks and activities, our hands require sensation and movement, such as joint motion, tendon gliding, and muscle contraction. All these shold occur in a smooth & co-ordinated manner.
When a problem takes place in the hand, care must be given to all the different types of tissues that make function of the hand possible.
  • Hand surgery is the field of medicine that deals with problems of the hand, wrist and forearm.

  • Hand surgeons care for these problems without surgery, and they are specially trained to operate when necessary.

  • Many hand surgeons are also experts in diagnosing and caring for shoulder and elbow problems. In other words, they are trained in comprehensive care of the entire upper extremity.

  • Hand surgeons are orthopedic, plastic or general surgeons who have additional training in surgery of the hand.
  • Please visit Patient Resources for additional useful information.
