The complex structures of the hand, wrist and elbow require highly specialized care. Orthopaedic Medicine and Surgery's Hand Surgeons provide diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of hand and wrist problems including trauma, occupational injuries, arthritis, neuropathies such as carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel syndrome, cysts, and congenital problems. From tennis elbow to tendon repair, our physicians’ primary goal is to return patients to maximal function as quickly as possible.
CAO serves patients in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland.
Because your hands are in constant motion, they are vulnerable to injury. Repetitive stress, or overuse injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis are among the most common. Your hands and wrists can also be affected by normal wear and tear on the joints, resulting in arthritis.
In addition, your hands offer a certain amount of protection to your body, which makes them susceptible to fractures and injuries that can result in damaged ligaments, tendons and nerves. Due to the intricate anatomy of the hands and wrists, you need a doctor who has the training and experience in the delicate procedures required to relieve hand pain and to preserve or restore normal function to the hands and wrists.
