Hand and Microvascular Surgery

The Rutgers Health Hand and Microvascular Surgery practice treats conditions of the hand and elbow. The practice seeks to initially treat problems with conservative care when appropriate, which often consists of splinting and therapy. When necessary, we will perform surgical procedures, including microsurgery, to relieve pain, restore function and strength, or improve hand motion.

Conditions of the hand and elbow that we treat include:

  • Congenital deformities
  • Degenerative or systemic arthritic conditions
  • Nerve compression syndromes such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Tumors

Full evaluation and diagnosis of hand and elbow problems require careful physical examination. Our practice compliments physical exams with X-rays, electrical studies (electromyography or EMG), and imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Physicians who serve our practice are on the faculty of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in research and teaching about all aspects of orthopaedics, as well as hand and elbow conditions. Each brings life-changing knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.

If you or a loved one seeks diagnosis and treatment for hand and elbow problems, make an appointment with the Rutgers Health Hand and Microvascular Surgery practice.
