Why Choose Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset for Hand and Upper Extremity Injuries?

We’re the premier practice in area for injuries that affect hands and arms. We always start with most conservative treatment and then tailor options to your goals. We offer:

  • Latest advancements in treatment: We offer cutting-edge therapies and newer, less invasive surgical techniques that help you heal faster. This includes wide-awake hand surgery and arthroscopic surgery, both of which lead to better outcomes.  
  • Convenience every step of the way: We have multiple locations that offer physical and occupational therapy close by. We do everything we can to help you navigate the treatment and recovery process.

Hand and Upper Extremity Conditions We Treat

Many conditions can affect hands, wrists, and arms. Our hand and upper extremity surgeons most commonly treat:

  • Arthritis in hands and thumbs.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome in elbows.
  • De Quervain tendonitis
  • Dupuytren contracture in hands.
  • Fractures and sprains in fingers, hands, wrists, and elbows.
  • Ganglion cysts in hands and wrists.
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Olecranon bursitis in elbows.
  • Shoulder injuries (Treated by hand and upper extremity surgeons as well as sports medicine specialists)
  • Tennis elbow
  • Trigger finger and mallet finger.
  • Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injuries.

Treatments for Hand, Wrist, and Upper Extremity Injuries

When we can, we start with conservative treatments, such as:

  • Medication to reduce pain, inflammation, or swelling.
  • Injections that relieve pain, such as steroid injections. We also use an injectable prescription medication (collagenase, or Xiaflex) to treat adults with Dupuytren contracture.
  • Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy (PRP). PRP is an injectable, nonsurgical procedure and regenerative therapy that promotes faster healing of hand and wrist injuries and reduces symptoms.
  • Physical/occupational therapy – Working with our therapists can help reduce pain and improve mobility. For many people, physical therapy alone can help them get back to activities they enjoy.

Hand and Upper Extremity Surgeries We Perform

Some injuries and conditions need more intervention, including surgery. Common procedures include:

  • Arthroscopy: Doctors make tiny incisions and use a camera to diagnose problems with hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulders. Surgeons can also use arthroscopy to repair fractures, remove ganglion cysts, or treat other conditions.
  • Carpal or cubital tunnel release: Carpal tunnel surgery helps release the pressure on the median nerve (the wrist). Cubital tunnel surgery helps release the pressure on the ulnar nerve (the elbow).
  • Ligament surgery: Doctors make a tiny incision to either repair or replace the damaged ligament.
  • Microvascular (microsurgery): Microsurgery is an advanced procedure that uses tiny, precise instruments and high-powered magnification to repair the nerves and arteries in hands and wrists.
  • Tendon surgery: We can repair tendons in fingers, wrists, elbows, and shoulders. This includes surgeries for trigger finger, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff.
  • Wide-awake hand and wrist surgery: Wide-awake surgery uses a local anesthesia, mixed with epinephrine. You can communicate with the surgeon and complete range of motion tests, which leads to better outcomes.
  • Wrist and hand fracture care: Surgical treatments for more severe wrist and hand fractures usually consist of setting the bone and bone fragments in place with plates, screws, or pins.
