Hand and Wrist
At the Center for Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery, our caring and compassionate specialists treat injuries and conditions that have not responded to treatment elsewhere.
We provide expert, personalized evaluation, and treatment for everything from the most common problems to the most complex. Our UAMS specialists are qualified to treat any condition of the hand, forearm, and wrist, including tumors.
Our surgeons are fellowship trained, providing a high level of expertise and experience in hand surgery. Our goal is to see that you return to the quality of life you had before your injury or problem.
We treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Work-related and other traumatic injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cumulative trauma disorders (overuse syndrome)
- Congenital hand injuries and deformities
- Upper extremity pain problems
- Nerve disorders, injuries and compression syndromes
- Brachial plexus injuries and conditions
The Center for Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery staff members believe that therapy is an important step in treating acute injuries and chronic problems, and they work closely with UAMS’ occupational therapists to ensure a full recovery following surgery.
If you need to see a specialist at our Center for Hand and Upper Extremity at UAMS, please ask your primary care physician for a referral.
