Most people use their Hands and Wrists for a majority of their daily activities, most of the time without ever stopping to think about it. The wrist and hand are two of the most complex and susceptible areas of the body to injury.
The human hand, itself, is very intricate and delicate in structure and requires a totally different surgical approach than other areas. Whether treating fractures, arthritis or deformities, hand surgery usually includes treatment of the entire hand, wrist and forearm. This whole region works as a single unit, and the dysfunction of a single part needs consideration of the whole.
Shore Orthopaedic University Associates offers a focused treatment approach for patients with hand and upper extremity conditions and dysfunctions. Our Hand Team is dedicated to creating quality outcomes for patients by using a multidisciplinary approach with on-site certified hand therapists and a variety of traditional alternatives.
