At Florida Hand Center, we are dedicated to providing the best possible care for our patients. Our board-certified surgeons specialize in a wide variety of hand and upper extremity conditions and provide comprehensive care, from diagnosis and treatment to rehabilitation. Whether you need urgent care for an acute injury or would like to explore your options with a reconstructive or minimally invasive procedure, we will work together with you to achieve the best outcomes.
Surgery is often recommended for conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, thumb arthritis, and Dupuytren’s contracture. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair fractures or torn tendons or ligaments due to trauma or repetitive use injuries. Our team can also provide reconstructive surgeries for severe deformities caused by birth defects, such as syndactyly (webbed fingers) or polydactyly (extra digits).
At Florida Hand Center, we understand that undergoing hand surgery can be daunting. That’s why our knowledgeable team will take the time to explain all of your options and answer any questions you may have in a relaxed, comfortable environment. We’ll start with an in-depth consultation to discuss your condition and determine the best course of action. Next, our board-certified surgeons will review your medical history, perform a physical exam, and take any necessary imaging studies (X-rays or MRIs) to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to you.
Your doctor will perform a physical exam and review any imaging studies to determine if surgery is necessary for your condition. In some cases, non-surgical treatment options may be available, such as medications or injections. For long-term relief from chronic pain or to achieve aesthetic results, however, surgery may be the best option.
Carpal tunnel release is the most common type of hand surgery. This procedure relieves pressure on the median nerve in the wrist, which can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in your fingers and hands. Other common types of surgeries include trigger finger release (to help with thumb or finger stiffness), tendon repair for a torn ligament or tendon, and joint fusion for severe arthritis.
The timeline for hand surgery varies depending on the procedure and type of anesthesia being used. Some procedures can be performed in an outpatient setting, while other more complex operations may require a hospital stay. Our team will work with you to determine the best plan for your needs and goals. At Florida Hand Center, we understand that every patient is unique — which is why our personalized approach to treatment ensures each person’s individual needs are met.
Hand surgery is typically considered low-risk, however, as with all surgical treatments, there can be risks involved. Our board-certified surgeons are experienced in hand and upper extremity procedures and will review any potential complications or side effects prior to the operation.
