Our specialty-trained, board-certified wrist doctors at our Hand & Upper Extremity Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of wrist injuries and conditions.
Wrist pain can result from a fall onto an outstretched hand or a condition that develops over time, like carpal tunnel, though due to the location of the wrist and its use in everyday tasks, pain associated with the wrist can be felt throughout the hand and forearm. Treatments for wrist pain also vary, from nonsurgical care to minimally invasive wrist surgery.
Patients who suffer from wrist 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 in the wrist through a fellowship are often referred to as wrist specialists.
