Hand and Wrist Care at OrthoKnox
OrthoKnox is proud to offer specialized hand and wrist care in Knoxville, Tennessee. Problems with your hands or wrists can affect what you do every day. Injuries and conditions in this area can be particularly bothersome because of the intricate network of nerves, blood vessels, tendons, and ligaments, as well as bones and muscles.
Our team of orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists have specialized training and experience with hand and wrist injuries and conditions, so we know exactly how to handle these delicate situations.
Hand and wrist surgery at OrthoKnox includes:
Arthritis at the base of the thumb can be a painful and debilitating condition that affects a person’s ability to grasp objects between their thumb and fingers. When non-operative measures no longer provide relief, surgery through one or two small incisions can be performed to stabilize the worn ligaments and remove the diseased arthritic bone.
Fractures of the hand and wrist can be especially problematic. Many fractures can be treated with small incisions and percutaneous techniques in order to facilitate rapid recovery with fewer side effects.
