Arthritis of the Hand


Arthritis of the Hand Treatments and Surgeries

Arthritis is the most common group of ailments of the hand.  Thankfully, the treatment of arthritis has improved tremendously over the last few years, particularly for rheumatoid arthritis. As a hand surgeon, I am familiar with and offer many non-surgical treatments  steroid injections, splinting, and occupational therapy.  Nevertheless, there are many cases where surgery for arthritis is helpful and necessary. Examples include simple surgeries for ganglions, trigger fingers or tendonitis (all of these are aspects of arthritis) and more complex surgery for thumb, finger and wrist arthritis.  I have advanced fellowship training in hand surgery and microsurgery (Subspecialty Certificate in Surgery of the Hand (formerly CAQ Hand) administered by the American Board of Plastic Surgery) and 15 years of experience in the practice of hand surgery.
