Your hands are the primary way you interact physically with the world. Whether you regularly engage in manual labor, desk work or domestic chores, upper extremity problems, including your hands, wrists, elbows or shoulders, can keep you from doing things efficiently—or sometimes at all. If you are suffering from wrist, hand or finger pain or dysfunction, it may be a sign of a larger problem.

Texas Orthopedic Hospital is staffed by upper extremity specialists who are trained to focus on this critical part of the body. Our highly-skilled surgeons specialize in microsurgery, soft-tissue surgery and congenital hand deformities. Almost every hand specialist is part of the Fondren Orthopedic Group, a group globally recognized for leadership in orthopedic medicine.
