American Society of Surgery of the Hand website.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition that affects many people from all walks of life. It mainly causes numbness and discomfort in the fingers, often at night, while driving, typing, biking, or using tools. There are different options for treating CTS. Dr. Anderson takes pride in being able to offer the least invasive carpal tunnel surgery for quick recovery and minimal interruption of his patient's busy lives.
Trigger finger and thumb
Catching , sticking and locking of the fingers can be painful and at the very least a inconvenience and nuisance getting through the day. Often these can be treated with a simple injection in the office at the same time as your consultation. In other cases that are resistant to injections, the surgery can be performed in the simple, comfortable and safe environment here in the office minor procedure suite without the hassle and expense of the operating room and traditional anesthesia.
Thumb and Wrist Arthritis
Pain, stiffness, and limited function are the most common symptoms of arthritis in the hand, thumb and wrist. There are many new advances in the treatment of these conditions that can help you return to comfortable function with less downtime than traditional options.
Fractures/Broken bones of the hand, wrist and arm
While some broken bones are obvious, breaks of small bones in the wrist can prove tricky to diagnose. If a "sprain" is not getting better it's worth having a specialist take a look so you don't lose the window of opportunity to get the best treatment. A hand/wrist specialist knows the right studies to order and correct treatments for these injuries whether simple or complex.
Injured tendons and nerves
Cuts and injuries to the hand can damage the important tendons that bend and straighten our fingers. Injuries to nerves can cause loss of sensation or movement of the fingers. While cuts may appear simple, these are often complicated injuries that require specialized surgery to repair. Don't wait to have these examined.
Masses of the hand/wrist and ganglion cysts
Lumps and bumps in the hand and wrist are common. An experienced hand surgeon can help advise you on your best options for treatment.
