Hand and Upper Extremity Program
Reaching, grabbing, writing, driving, lifting, or clicking a mouse – all seemingly simple daily activities that could be affected by overuse, strain, or trauma. This area of the human body is uniquely complex and includes the joints, bones, and muscles of the fingers, hand, wrist, arm, elbow, and shoulder.
The Hand and Upper Extremity Program at the Institute of Clinical Orthopedics and Neurosciences offers comprehensive care of all aspects of the hand, arm and shoulder. Treatment of these areas requires a special skill set. Our team of orthopedic surgeons, specialists, and clinical support staff work together to provide effective and efficient solutions that fit the needs of each individual patient—so you can get back to your life quickly and with confidence.
We establish an accurate diagnosis and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from upper-extremity pain or discomfort. The ICON team is well versed in treating a variety of conditions affecting the hand, wrist, arm and shoulder. To learn more, call 760.416.4511.
