  • Hand and finger fractures – displacements that require stabilization with pins, screws or plates
  • Ligament tears of the thumb – acute tears or complete ruptures
  • Tendon lacerations – rejoin tendon and repair other damage
  • Nail bed injuries – crush injuries that may lead to deformity of the nail plate
  • Congenital hand deformities
    • Syndactyly (webbing of the fingers)
