Writing, driving, lifting, and waving are activities we all take for granted. Each of these simple daily activities is possible because of the flexibility and versatility of our hands, forearms, and elbows.
The intricate design and the frequent use each day can make the hands highly susceptible to injury and disease. Our fellowship-trained hand, wrist, and elbow surgeons are experts in diagnosing and treating this complex and important part of your body. The Hand, Wrist & Elbow Center is staffed by orthopedic hand specialists and certified hand therapists, providing a multidisciplinary approach to the upper extremity.
Some common conditions we see and treat are carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis of the hand, trigger finger, and Dupuytren's disease.
Our Hand, Wrist, and Elbow providers at CU Orthopedics offer many procedures from repetitive motion injuries to complications from aging. CU Orthopedics can help in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous hand, forearm, and elbow issues.
