Our specialty-trained, board-certified hand doctors at our Hand & Upper Extremity Center at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of hand injuries and conditions.
Most often associated with an injury, hand pain can also develop over time from a chronic condition or from overuse of any of the many bones, ligaments, or tendons within the hand. Treatments for hand pain can vary, from conservative nonsurgical treatments to minimally invasive hand surgery.
Patients who suffer from hand pain may visit their primary care physician's office, though a referral is often made to an orthopedist, who is a medical doctor trained to treat injuries and conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the entire body. Orthopedic doctors who undergo additional specialized training for the hand through a fellowship are often referred to as hand specialists.
If you're suffering from a hand injury or condition, it may be time to visit a hand doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
