Our hands are marvels of engineering…a complex network of bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves and blood vessels, equally able to make a fist, manipulate tiny objects or offer a loving touch. Any injury or disease can impair the use of your hands, causing pain, hardship and lost work time. Practicing at Nassau University Medical Center, NuHealth’s board-certified hand surgeons specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of all problems of the hand, wrist and forearm, including:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Congenital Limb Differences (Birth Defects)
- Fractures of the Hand, Wrist, and Forearm
- Nerve and Tendon Injuries
- Sports Injuries of the Hand and Wrist
- Tennis Elbow
- Trigger Finger
- Wrist Pain
In addition to performing surgical procedures, NuHealth’s hand surgeons often recommend non-surgical treatments, including medication, splints, injections and other therapies.
