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, Jenna Godfrey, MD, MSPH, Michael C. Koester, MD, Lisa M. Pomranky, MD, and Jason D. Tavakolian, 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:
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.
