Our hands are indispensable tools that are in nearly constant use, allowing us to perform hundreds of everyday functions at home, work and play. Our hands are intricate and delicate, yet we rarely give a second thought to the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles that must work together to function normally. That is, we don’t think about it until something happens that hinders our ability to complete our tasks comfortably.
That’s where the orthopedist at Nutley Orthopaedic Group can help. Our experience in treating conditions of the hand, fingers and wrist including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, sprains, dislocations, fractures and more has made our practice second to none in this vital field. Our team guides each patient through the diagnostic, treatment and recovery stages expertly and comfortably, producing positive outcomes that allow for the resumption of the activities we enjoyed before the injury.
Conditions affecting the hand can come about as a result of a sports injury, a trauma, nerve damage, or often simply due to wear and tear over the years. Stiffness, pain and swelling of the fingers, hand and wrist that do not resolve after periods of trying methods like Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation, it is time to seek the opinion of an orthopedist. Sometimes a condition may be treatable through the use of oral anti-inflammatories if the symptoms are mild, or injections of medications like cortisone. If the condition does not resolve and the patient continues to experience chronic, disabling pain, our practice offers many safe and effective surgical options.
There are few conditions that can take away our independence and quality of life like an injury or condition affecting the hands, fingers and wrist. At Nutley Orthopaedic Group, our orthopedists have the experience and technology to provide state-of-the-art treatment matched by our commitment to personal service and attention.
