Hand Injuries and Surgery

The hands and wrists have a unique structure. When you suffer an injury or disorder it is best treated by an orthopaedic surgeon who is specially trained in hand surgery and understands the hand's functions. At Gundersen Health System you will find a qualified team lead by fellowship trained hand surgeons.

People might see one of our hand surgeons if they suffer from symptoms such as:

  • Numbness and tingling in the fingers
  • Infection in the hand or wrist
  • Trauma to the hand such as a fracture or rip, torn or cut tendon
  • Sports injuries of the hand or wrist
  • Wrist pain

Many hand injuries or conditions should be treated as quickly as possible to prevent it from becoming a worse injury.

The Gundersen hand surgery team also provides treatments for many conditions including:

Not all conditions treated by our hand surgery team require surgery. They only do surgery if it's painful or uncomfortable or it affects the use of the hand. Whenever possible, they will educate patients to manage the condition and hopefully prevent surgery. For example, a majority of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome patients are treated with a brace.
