The upper extremity consists of the upper arm, forearm and hand, extending from the shoulder joint to the fingers. Our fellowship-trained hand, wrist and elbow surgeons are experts in diagnosing and treating upper extremity problems. Writing, driving, lifting, and waving are activities we all take for granted. Each of these simple daily activities is possible because of the flexibility and versatility of our hands, forearms, and elbows.
The intricate design and the frequent use each day can make the upper extremity highly susceptible to injury and disease. Our compassionate hand, wrist and elbow surgeons are experts in diagnosing and treating this complex and important part of your body.
