Hand and Upper Extremity Services at Middlesex Hospital
When you’ve injured your hand, wrist or elbow, suffer from arthritis or have compressed a nerve, even the simplest motions and normal efforts at lifting or carrying become a painful chore. These physical restrictions often limit or conflict with many job functions, and make recreation, school and work around the home difficult or impossible.
At Middlesex Hospital, our skilled orthopedic surgical team can provide the helping hand you need, and guide you on the path to more normal, typically less painful use of your hands, wrists and arms. No matter the hand or arm injury or condition, our team will review your symptoms, coordinate investigative radiology, and analyze best options before recommending next steps. Some patients may require surgery, others a variety of physical, rehabilitative and/or medicinal therapies. We address:
- Nerve compression
- Simple and complex fractures of the hands
- Job- or accident-related injuries
- Replantation of severed fingers
- Repetitive wrist and hand injuries
- Severely damaged or deteriorating joints

We then help you navigate surgical and non-surgical recommendations and follow-up requirements. If your hand requires surgery, our Board-certified surgeons and highly experienced orthopedic surgical team perform a variety of advanced procedures and joint-replacement surgeries, using the most sophisticated tools, customized materials and technologies.
