Repetitive, everyday activities, from typing to gardening, can cause overuse injuries leading to pain and stiffness in the hand, wrist and elbow. Sports, arthritis and accidents can also lead to a loss of function and mobility. But you don’t have to suffer through it. Sutter’s orthopedic and hand specialists provide a wide range of treatment options to help.
We care for many conditions including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Dupuytren's contracture
- Hand and wrist deformities
- Fractures and broken bones
- Elbow ligament injuries
- Ganglion cysts
- Nerve damage
- Tennis elbow
We use a variety of treatments to reduce inflammation, repair injuries and restore mobility in the upper extremities, such as with carpal tunnel release and wrist arthroscopy. We offer specialized procedures to repair nerve damage and treat the fingers, including trigger finger release and finger joint fusion.
If you need more complex surgical solutions, such as finger, thumb joint (CMC), wrist or elbow replacement or elbow reconstruction, surgeons in the Sutter Health network are among the most experienced in Northern California. For other situations, like hip fractures and severe arthritis, we offer the latest in hip resurfacing and hip replacement, along with hip athroscopy.
