The Lawrence Hospital Department of Orthopedics & Sports Medicine treats a wide range of hand conditions, and our hand surgeons are able to provide surgical intervention when it is needed. A few of the more common conditions we treat include the following:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition, especially in those who use their hands in their occupation such as secretaries, factory workers and seamstresses. In this condition the flexor tendons located in the carpal tunnel begin to swell, and cause pressure on the median nerve. Many times conservative treatment is effective and surgery is not needed. However, if other methods have failed, surgery can often provide much needed relief by dividing the ligament that forms the wall of the carpal tunnel, thus reducing pressure on the median nerve.
- Arthritis of the Thumb Carpometacarpal Joint: Initial treatments for this arthritic condition often include anti-inflammatory painkillers, splints worn at night, and cortisone injections. If these methods no longer work, and pain is such that it interferes with daily life, thumb arthroplasty may provide much needed relief. Unlike joint replacement of the hip or knee, thumb arthroplasty simply removes the section of joint causing the pain, and repositions the tendons of the hand to provide a cushion between the remaining bones.
- Congenital Deformity: In some cases of deformity, the contortion of the hand is such that hand reconstruction surgery is needed to restore functionality, and in some cases to improve the aesthetic appearance as well. Each case will be individually evaluated to determine the best possible options.
- Traumatic Injury: Another circumstance that may necessitate hand reconstruction surgery is the event of severe traumatic injury. In cases of trauma, hand arthroscopy may be used to provide an accurate diagnosis, and also to help clear residual debris caused by fracture. It may be necessary to utilize surgical pins, screws or plates to stabilize the wrist, hand or fingers in the case of multiple fractures. You can be assured that whatever measure might be needed, our hand surgeons will provide meticulous proficiency, to ensure the best possible recovery.
