Hand & Wrist Surgery

Comprehensive & Personalized Care

Hand and wrist injuries can affect your ability to work and prevent you from enjoying hobbies such as cooking, playing sports or musical instruments, as well as the simple activities of life such as holding onto things, writing, typing, or even opening a jar. The orthopaedic hand specialists at the MFA are dedicated to delivering comprehensive and personalized care focused on maximizing our patients’ hand and wrist function. We use the latest techniques to restore function, allowing our patients to use their hands with relief of pain and improved function. We have been at the forefront in the development of many of these techniques. Our expertise includes surgical and non-operative treatment for common and complex hand and wrist conditions. The majority of surgical procedures for hand and wrist problems are performed on an outpatient basis and often do not require general anesthesia.

  • Repair of tendon, nerve and vessel injuries.
