The frequency with which we use our hands and wrists makes them prone to injuries, dislocations, and fractures. Since the hand consists of dozens of bones and joints as well as ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, and cartilage that work together to perform routine, everyday tasks, repetitive motions can lead to tendinitis, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome, resulting in pain and discomfort.
Our hand experts at Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are some of the most highly respected doctors in the region. With extensive education and training specifically in the hand and wrist, David Bear, MD, Kenneth P. Butters, MD, Heather A. Campion, MD, Jenna Godfrey, MD, MSPH, Michael C. Koester, MD, Lisa M. Pomranky, MD, and Jason D. Tavakolian, MD, are considered regional experts in assessing, diagnosing, and treating hand injuries and conditions.
