Hand and Upper Extremity

No matter your age or occupation, your hands are always working.

J. Robert Anderson, MD, discusses hand and upper extremity orthopaedics.

Because they are essential to your daily life, any irregularity can cause concern. The good news is our orthopaedic surgeons can readily diagnose and treat most common hand problems that interfere with your daily activities.

These specialists are skilled in the latest techniques of arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery, reconstruction of congenital abnormalities, and microvascular surgery. In addition, our hand therapists work with physical and occupational therapists to provide personalized rehabilitation to enhance the results of the cutting-edge treatments we provide.

The Promising Future

Current research encompasses such diverse areas as:

  • Investigation of implant strength and durability
  • Improved techniques in reconstruction of arthritic joints
  • Microvascular bone transfers
