Our hands are important tools that help us interact with the world around us. We use them to earn a living, to participate in sports and hobbies, and to care for ourselves and our families. When our hands become disabled, our lives are affected in many ways.
The team of specialists who performs hand surgery at the University of Michigan Health System is dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a variety of hand problems. Beginning with your initial consultation, and concluding with your last visit, our team strives to make your experience a positive one. From the simplest fracture to the most complex reconstruction, our surgeons approach each case individually, with a specific plan designed to maximize the restoration of both form and function. Depending on the types of hand conditions our patients face, surgeons at the University of Michigan will help determine the best procedures to maximize hand functionality and normal hand appearances.
Procedures include everything from fracture fixation to tendon repair and nerve decompression. The team also performs wrist arthroscopy, a minimally invasive technique, and elbow joint replacement.
