Hand surgery may be necessary to treat trauma or related conditions that alter the way the hands function. Surgical intervention may be necessary when other forms of treatment are ineffective. Oftentimes, mild related conditions do not require surgery, but severe stages must be treated to regain the normal function and look of the hands.
These are just some of the most common related conditions to hand surgery that are treated at Florida Hospital:
- Trauma or injury to the hand
- Birth defects
- Carpal tunnel syndrome – carpal tunnel surgery is necessary to reduce pressure on the nerve to stop the pain
- Dupuytren’s contracture – improves the mobility of the fingers
- Rheumatoid arthritis – requires joint replacement, cleaning or fusion to stop swelling and pain
