Hand & Elbow Treatments

About The Hand ElbowThe human hand is an intricate and complex mechanism of bones, ligaments, muscles and nerves. Our hands are constantly at work, whether on our phones, playing with our families or enjoying sports and other activities. Thus, the potential for a variety of hand injuries and painful conditions exists. Like your hands,our elbows are almost constantly engaged, so many things can contribute to painful elbow conditions.

That’s why you need orthopedic surgeons who specialize in hands and upper extremities to diagnose and treat your pain. If you need a hand orthopedist or an elbow orthopedist in Tyler, TX, or anywhere in East Texas, the specialists at Azalea Orthopedics are dedicated to helping you regain pain-free movement through treatment and support.

Injuries and Problems

of the Hand and Elbow

Hands and elbows can sustain traumatic injuries from accidents, athletics or vehicle crashes, but they can also be damaged by diseases and conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, strokes, cerebral palsy and brain injuries. In today’s work environments, repetitive injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome have become prevalent.

Whatever the cause of your difficulties or pain, a skilled orthopedic hand specialist can offer you relief through various means of treatment. Depending upon your specific condition, you may be helped non-surgically, but if you need hand surgery, Azalea Orthopedics’ hand specialists can set you on the path to loving your
hands again.
