Normal Hand Anatomy
The hand in the human body is made up of the wrist, palm, and fingers. The most flexible part of the human skeleton, the hand enables us to perform many of our daily activities.
Trigger finger is caused by inflammation of the tenosynovium. Inflammation forms a nodule and makes it difficult for the tendon to glide smoothly within its sheath causing “catching” of the finger in a bent position and then suddenly releasing the finger straight.
Dupuytren’s Contracture is a hand condition where thickening of the underlying fibrous tissues of the palm cause the fingers to bend inward.
De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
The muscles and bones of the hand are connected by thick flexible tissue called tendons. Tendons are covered by a thin soft sheath of tissue known as synovium.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common, painful, progressive condition that is caused by compression of the median nerve at the wrist area.
The wrist is comprised of two bones in the forearm, the radius and ulna, and eight tiny carpal bones in the palm.
Arthroscopic Wrist Surgery
Your wrist is a complex joint made up of eight small bones called carpal bones. These bones are supported by connecting ligaments.
Carpal Tunnel Release
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway on the palm side of your wrist. Small wrist bones known as carpals form the bottom and sides of your carpal tunnel and a strong band of connecting tissue
Hand surgery is performed to restore the structure and functionality of the fingers, wrist and hand secondary to a traumatic injury,
Treatment of Hand/Finger Fractures
Fingers are fine structures of the human body which assist in daily routine activities through coordinated movements.
