Hand and Wrist Orthopedic Surgery in Anderson, SC

Hands and wrists are made up of an incredibly complex system of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons that all work together in a very precise way to allow for a large array of positions hundreds of times each day. This is why, when you injure this area, you often require the highly specialized care of an orthopedic hand and wrist specialist, so you can get back to enjoying life pain free.


There are a wide variety of injuries that can affect the hand and wrist, including fractures, sprains, tears in connective tissue, inflammation and dislocation. If you injure any of these structures, your hand and wrist function may be compromised.


There are a variety of injuries that affect hand function. Common ailments include bone fractures, tears, inflammation, and dislocation. Common ailments of the hands and wrists we treat include:


  • Osteoarthritis – Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease in which the cartilage in your joints begins to break down. Common symptoms include pain, swelling and stiffness in your joints. When osteoarthritic occurs in your hands and wrists, you might have difficulty gripping items, which can interfere with normal daily activities such as opening jars.

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Symptoms include weakness, tingling, numbness or pain in the fingers or hand, especially the thumb, index finger, middle finger and part of the ring finger. You might also experience pain between your elbow and hand.

  • Dislocations – If you’ve ever “jammed” your finger, you know that it is very painful when your finger bones move out of normal alignment and dislocate. It is also one of the most common types of sports injury and is treated non-surgically by moving the finger back into its correct position.

  • Wrist Fractures – While there are several types of wrist fractures, the most common is a distal radius fracture. This is a break in the radius bone in your forearm near your wrist and usually occurs as a result of using your hand to break a fall.

  • Sprains – Sprains in your hand or wrist occur from falls or accidents. They are also a common (and very painful) type of sports injury.

  • Tendonitis – Tendons are found throughout your hands and wrists. They are fibrous structures that attach bones to muscle and can become inflamed or irritated, which is called tendonitis.
