Hand/Upper Extremity

At Orthopaedic Specialists of Massachusetts, we treat injuries and disorders of the hand and upper extremity. Your hands and arms are critical to daily activities. Unfortunately, through everyday wear and tear or injury, these bones, tendons and joints may become damaged. If you have had an injury or are experiencing chronic pain in your hand, wrist, forearm or elbow, we recommend you let one of our expert physicians identify and find a solution to the cause of the problem.

Issues that could affect your hand and/or upper extremity:

  • Arthritis- osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can affect the hands, wrists, or elbows
  • Tendon problems- tennis or golfer’s elbow, wrist tendonitis, biceps injury, trigger fingers
  • Traumatic Injuries
  • Acute fractures and stress fractures
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ganglion Cysts of the Hand
  • De Quervain's Tenosynovitis
