Hand Surgery Q & A

What is hand surgery?

Hand surgery is a category of orthopedics that focuses on making repairs to your palm, fingers, and wrists. Hand surgeries at Twin Palm Orthopedics can address acute injuries, overuse injuries, degenerative conditions, and even certain congenital conditions affecting the appearance or function of your hands.

You probably use your hands more than any other part of your body, especially for fine motor skills. Your hands contain networks of muscle, bone, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels, and defects with any of those structures can result in limited hand and wrist mobility and dexterity. 

To get an idea of the amount of damage to your hand and the exact surgical techniques needed, the Twin Palm Orthopedics team uses imaging tests like X-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to look at the internal structures. They interpret the results of these imaging tests with you. 

What are some of the most common types of hand surgery?

The hand surgery specialists at Twin Palm Orthopedics use well-known hand surgery techniques to accomplish a wide range of hand and wrist function goals. They plan and perform your surgery carefully, often using more than one surgical technique during the same operation.

During the recovery period after hand surgery, you’ll continue working with the team at Twin Palm Orthopedics to rehabilitate your hand with physical therapy. The team evaluates you regularly to track your progress and make sure you restore as much mobility in your hand and wrist as possible in the recovery period.
