Orthopaedic and plastic surgeons with Temple's Hand & Upper Extremity Surgery Program provide specialized treatment for injuries and conditions of the fingers, hand, wrist and elbow. We provide comprehensive care for everything from sprains to arthritis to reconstruction.
Gripping a fork, twisting a doorknob and lifting a bag of groceries are everyday tasks you do without thinking. But pain from an injury or condition changes that. Temple hand and elbow specialists help you get back to doing normal activities through diagnosis and treatment using the latest techniques and technology.
Many conditions like strains, overuse injuries and arthritis often improve with non-surgical treatment. Sometimes surgery is the right option for the best outcome. With any type of surgery, the goal is to help you regain strength, motion and function with minimal disability.
When possible, our board-certified and fellowship-trained hand surgeons use minimally invasive techniques that may also allow patients to experience less pain and a quicker recovery.
A Team Approach to Care
Specialists with the Hand & Upper Extremity Program are committed to helping you get back to your normal activities as quickly as possible. Working with you, our entire care team develops a plan with the best opportunity to get you there.
