Hand and upper extremity treatment options

The specialists within our comprehensive orthopedic care program first explore nonsurgical treatment options such as physical therapy, injections and help with lifestyle modifications. If those methods don't provide the pain relief and restore the necessary range of motion, surgery may be the best course of action.

Our orthopedic surgeons have mastered many advanced surgical techniques, including shoulder replacement surgery, to resolve many conditions and injuries. Whenever possible, your surgeon will use a minimally invasive approach, which usually means smaller incisions than traditional surgeries and a faster recovery for the patient.

Our team will be with you each step of the way, from educating you on what to expect from your procedure to fully addressing any questions you may have during your follow-up appointments after surgery. Your care is in good hands with us.
