Hand, Wrist & Elbow
The Hand, Wrist and Elbow Division at Rochester Community Orthopaedics brings state-of-the-art diagnosis, treatment and care for upper extremity disorders. Specially trained and board certified physicians and their support staff use state-of-the-art procedures to diagnose, manage and correct conditions which can literally run from the fingertips to the elbow.
Treatment of the hand, wrist and elbow is a highly specialized field that deals with a broad set of conditions and symptoms. Many of these are treated with non- surgical approaches such as medications, injections, and therapy. When surgery is indicated, advanced and minimally invasive procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and without a hospital stay.
Specifically, we treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions that include:
- Tendon problems such as tennis elbow, acute sports injuries and tendon lacerations
- Trauma and fractures of bones from the elbow to the small bones in the hand
- Correction of arthritis and its deformities
- Nerve compression conditions including carpal tunnel syndrome
