Hand and Wrist
The human hand itself is very complex and delicate in structure. Hand surgery requires a totally different surgical approach, whether treating fractures, arthritis, or deformities. Hand surgery traditionally includes treatment of the entire hand, wrist, and forearm. Again, this whole region works as a single unit, and the dysfunction of a single part needs consideration of the whole. An additional year of training (fellowship) is required for those orthopedic surgeons seeking certification in hand surgery.
Therapy may be necessary for any surgery involving the hand or elbow. The objective at Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin is to provide exercise and activities designed to help return you to an active, productive lifestyle.
