Hand

Your fingers, hand and wrist consist of an intricate arrangement of joints, cartilage, and bones that must work together to accomplish functions we can easily take for granted. We depend on our hands for their flexibility and coordination when typing and writing. Muscle strength enables us to bend or straighten our wrist, and to grasp and grip objects. When something goes wrong with any of the joints, cartilage, or bones in the hand or wrist, suddenly simple tasks can become a chore.

Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists and physical therapists provide comprehensive surgical and non-surgical medical care for a wide spectrum of disorders and injuries of the fingers, hand, wrist, and lower arm. Using the latest techniques and treatment methods, our orthopedic surgeons and physiatrists provide a comprehensive solution for recovery of hand and wrist injury and disorder. Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta physicians and staff will explore nonsurgical treatment options such as physical therapy. Many OrthoAtlanta offices include certified Hand Therapists on staff.
