Reducing Pain, Restoring Function: A Team Approach to Hand Surgery
Though the hands may be small, their impact is significant. Your hands contain more bones than any other body part – an average of 27 in each. In fact, one of the most important ways we interact with the world is through our hands.
For people with constant hand or wrist pain due to a variety of conditions, their ability to express themselves, relate to others, and contribute to society may be severely limited.
The hand surgery team at MedStar Washington Hospital Center is comprised of plastic surgeons, MedStar Orthopaedic Institute surgeons, and skilled hand therapists. Together, they bring vast expertise to the evaluation and treatment of simple and complex disorders of the hand and upper extremities. Specializing in the delicate nerves, bones, tendons and soft tissue in the hand, wrist and elbow, the team can help reduce pain and restore hand function – often with short recovery times.
