/ Our Hand & Wrist Center Can Help You
At North Texas Orthopedics & Spine Center, our Hand & Wrist Center is staffed with specialists who have dedicated their orthopedic practices to diagnosing and treating patients with wrist and hand conditions and injuries. Their expertise, knowledge, and experience provide a solid foundation for our center.
When you receive care from one of our hand doctors at our Hand & Wrist Center, you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest level of specialized orthopedic care. Dedicated to using the latest evidence-based and most advanced treatments and hand surgery techniques, our hand doctors offer our hand and wrist patients advanced bone, joint, and muscle care.
To provide an accurate diagnosis of your hand or wrist issue, our doctors will perform an evaluation as well as order tests, such as X-rays. Once the cause of your wrist or hand problem has been determined, our hand doctors will work together to develop an individualized treatment plan that utilizes nonsurgical treatment options first instead of recommending surgery. These treatments may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, or an additional medical treatment option. If the conservative treatment options are ineffective at providing relief for your condition or injury, our hand surgeons will develop a surgical plan that is right for you.
If hand surgery is recommended for you, our hand surgeons are some of the most highly skilled surgeons and offer a broad range of wrist and hand surgeries. This includes the following surgeries and procedures:
- Basal joint surgery
- Carpal tunnel release
- De Quervain's release
- Ganglion cyst removal
- Minimally invasive surgery
