Even when other parts of the body are at rest, the hands are often busy. Hands are so vital to even the most basic activities of daily living. Their delicate bone structure and network of nerves make them vulnerable to debilitating injuries, sprains, and other painful conditions.
Midwest Orthopedic Specialty Hospital provides hand injury treatments for trauma to the bones, joints, tendons and nerves. When your hand pain is a result of arthritis, nerve compression syndromes, tumors or congenital conditions, reconstructive care using a wide range of surgical procedures is available.
If you have lingering or severe hand pain, request an appointment with one of our orthopedic specialists located in Milwaukee or Southeast Wisconsin. A dedicated hand pain specialist will work to diagnose your injury and discuss a comprehensive treatment plan.
