Hand & Wrist
Our hands do a lot, which makes hand and wrist injuries very common. When our hands or wrists are in pain, the most routine tasks can be agonizing.
Golden State Orthopedics & Spine (GSOS) takes a multi-faceted approach to treating hand and wrist injuries. This includes surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Nonsurgical treatments may include the use of anti-inflammatories, rest, splinting or casting, physical therapy, and injection therapy to relieve pain associated with various conditions.
Our Physicians specializing in upper extremity and hand surgery have undergone a minimum of five years of residency training, as well as fellowship training. Our orthopedic surgeons and their physician assistants are uniquely trained and experienced in treating every condition in the hand and wrist, from the simplest infection to the most complex surgeries.
The first step is a consultation to identify the issues. Our orthopedists will discuss the problem that the patient is experiencing and will examine the affected body part to properly diagnose the particular hand or wrist condition. After discussing different treatment options, our physicians will design a customized plan based on each patient’s needs.
