Hand pain or injury can dramatically affect quality of life, our ability to perform everyday tasks at work and home, and even to care for ourselves. It’s an area of  specialty that Resurgens Orthopaedics is expert in.

The supporting framework of your hand acts as a point of attachment for the muscles that make the wrist and fingers move. When you fracture one of the bones in this frame, medical evaluation and x-rays are usually necessary so that your doctor can determine the proper treatment. Depending on the type of fracture, your hand surgeon may recommend one of several treatment methods – a splint or cast to treat a fracture that isn’t displaced, surgery, a bone graft, or an “external fixator” to hold a fracture in place that’s already been set.

Resurgens’ hand specialists focus on the treatment of hand and upper extremity disorders, including fractures, tendon and nerve injuries, arthritis, nerve entrapments and pediatric disorders. Resurgens physicians are orthopaedic surgeons with extensive fellowship training in microsurgery and the care and treatment of conditions affecting the hand and upper extremity. Resurgens surgeons provide coverage at many area hospitals and practice throughout the metro Atlanta area. Call today for more information.
