Hand Surgery

Specialist in Hand Surgery

During a normal hour how many times do you use your hands to complete a task?

We use our hands to interact with our environment in order to make the most of our surroundings and for most of us the use of our hand is something we often take for granted. However should the hand become injured or affected by a medical condition such as arthritis or overuse syndromes then simple day-to-day tasks may become challenging and ultimately frustrating and painful. This can have a knock on affect on your function and enjoyment of life as well as your ability to continue to work, which could ultimately affect livelihood and income. Your hands are one of your biggest assets.

Addressing conditions of the hand in a timely fashion is therefore essential in maintaining good function. Whether it be genetic, through an accident or a condition which decreases function over time we can provide expert specialist assessment and treatment.
