Hand Surgery

Hand surgery is a delicate medical specialty that deals with conditions and injuries of the hand, wrist and forearm. Hand surgery is most often practiced by a general surgeon, orthopedic surgeon or plastic surgeon - many of whom have received special additional training or completed an intensive fellowship.

Although the name of their specialty might suggest otherwise, a hand surgeon may or may not determine that surgery is the best option for any given case, considering the full spectrum of treatment options (surgical and non-surgical) based on the individual circumstances of each patient.
