Wrist

Patient-Centered Wrist Care Begins Here

Much like the hand, the wrist consists of several bones and joints as well as ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, and cartilage. These intricate elements work together to allow for the mobility of the hand, and the frequency with which we use our hands and wrists makes them susceptible to injury or overuse conditions, most commonly tendinitis, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome.

At Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, our wrist experts have advanced, specialty training to assess, diagnose, treat a vast array of wrist injuries and conditions. Our wrist doctors and surgeons, David Bear, MD, Kenneth P. Butters, MD, Heather A. Campion, MD, Daniel C. Fitzpatrick, MD, Jenna Godfrey, MD, MSPH, Lisa M. Pomranky, MD, Daniel V. Sheerin, MD, Jason D. Tavakolian, MD, Anna van der Horst, MD, and Brandon G. Wilkinson, MD, are regionally recognized for their expertise and experience in performing an array of wrist treatments, both surgical and nonsurgical.

There are some wrist conditions and injuries that can heal on their own with time and rest, as they may be the result of overuse. However, if pain and discomfort persist or if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it is recommended that you see a wrist specialist:

  • Bumps have formed on your wrist
  • Cracking sounds or sensations when moving your wrist
  • Difficulty rotating your wrist joint
  • Elbow and forearm pain in addition to wrist pain
  • Elbow issues or elbow pain that is affecting your wrist
  • Hand weakness
  • Pins-and-needles sensations 
  • Swelling around your wrist joint
  • Tingling and numbness in your hand and wrist
  • Upper extremity pain that radiates down into your wrist 
  • Fingers that bend in toward your palm and wrist

No matter what type of treatment option is recommended for you, our medical experts will thoroughly explain your condition or injury and the treatment options available to you and address any question you may have.
