Hand surgeons are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of problems of the hand, wrist, and forearm. Hand surgery is a subspecialty of orthopedics, plastics, and general surgery requiring an additional year or more of training after completing five years of surgical residency. A qualified hand surgeon is an expert in the complexities of hand anatomy and microvascular surgery, which enables the surgeon to operate on the small bones and delicate nerves, vessels, and other structures in the hand, wrist, and forearm.
Although you may be referred to see a hand surgeon by your doctor or the emergency department, that does not necessarily mean you need surgery. Many conditions are primarily treated nonsurgically with medications, injections, splints, or therapy. Your hand surgeon will diagnose your problem and then recommend the best course of treatment. Common problems treated by a hand surgeon include carpal tunnel syndrome and hand numbness, finger lacerations with tendon or nerve injury, hand and wrist arthritis, and hand fractures.
If you have an injury or problem with your hand, wrist, or forearm that is causing pain or is affecting your hand, you may want to seek the treatment of a hand surgeon
