Hand and Wrist Issues We Treat
Here at KSF Orthopaedic Center, our orthopedic doctors are experienced and can treat a wide variety of hand and wrist problems. Together with 45 years of experience, our practice is one you can rely on, time and time again.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the more common hand and wrist injuries. If you suffer from this condition, then you may experience numbness, tingling, and pain. Our orthopedic doctors will inspect your hand and wrist to diagnose this problem and order an x-ray and an EMG (electromyography) or an NCS (nerve conduction study). In addition, non-invasive treatment for this condition includes wrist splints, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and cortisone injections.
As an illustration, suppose you have an accident involving your wrist and experience pain, swelling, or deformity of the injured wrist. In that case, you may be suffering from a wrist fracture. If you experience any of these symptoms, the hand and wrist orthopedic surgeons here at KSF Orthopaedic Center can help.
Another type of hand injury is Stenosing tenosynovitis. It is also known as trigger finger. If you experience this issue, you may find that your finger is locked in a flexed position when you wake up one morning. In the meantime, orthopedic treatments for this condition include rest and splints, anti-inflammatory medication, and cortisone injections.
Wrist sprains can be caused by an accident, like being struck by an object or falling on your wrist. Our orthopedic therapy may include icing, elevation, anti-inflammatory medications, braces or casts, and physical therapy after we diagnose this issue. For more questions about how to properly treat a sprain, call us today.
Mallet finger is a condition where you experience a loss of mobility in your hand. If you have mallet finger, your finger can be pushed straight, but it will not maintain this position on its own. In most cases, the treatment is orthopedic therapy in the form of a splint on the finger.
Basal joint arthritis is a disease that causes inflammation and stiffness in the joints. Treatment for this condition includes splints, anti-inflammatory medication, and cortisone injections. If these treatments do not work, our doctor may recommend you see our orthopedic surgeons.
If you have a mucous cyst, you may need to make an appointment with our orthopedic surgeon. An early sign of a mucous cyst may be grooving of your fingernail due to the cyst’s pressure on your nail bed. We can confirm the diagnosis by examining your finger and taking an x-ray at our MRI centers. We offer our services in Cypress, TX; The Woodlands, TX; Houston, TX and nearby areas.
One more type of hand or wrist issue is a ganglion cyst. These cysts are firm, fluid-filled mass that may appear on the back or palm side of your wrist. Ganglion cysts may be somewhat painful; we treat them by extracting fluid and applying a pressure dressing and a wrist splint. Our othopedic surgeons have experience removing cysts. They offer their services to The Woodlands, Cypress, TX and other areas within the Houston, TX area.
De Quervain’s tenosynovitis is inflammation of the tissue on the thumb side of your wrist. Our doctors can tell if you have this condition by examining your wrist. Treatment for this issue includes rest, anti-inflammatory medications, splints, and cortisone injections.
Dupuytren’s disease is an abnormal thickening of the tissue in the palm of your hand. We can confirm a case of Dupuytren’s disease by thoroughly examining your hands. Treatment for this condition is complex; surgical options are available, but even after successful surgery, symptoms may reoccur. If you believe you may have Dupuytren’s disease, give us a call at (281) 440-6960, and we’ll be more than happy to help. Our orthopedic surgeons are ready to offer care and attention to you as our patient.
