Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery

About the Hand and Upper Extremity Program

The University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Hospital provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to care for the evaluation and treatment of hand and upper extremity disorders. An experienced team of physicians, certified occupational and hand therapists, and support staff help patients achieve success in resolving a wide range of problems.

Services include the treatment of the following:

  • Traumatic injuries of the hand and upper extremity
    • Fractures
    • Tendon injuries
    • Nerve and blood vessel lacerations
  • Congenital deformities
  • Workplace and overuse injuries
    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Trigger finger
    • Ganglion cysts
    • de Quervain's syndrome
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Left untreated, minor hand problems can become major, chronic conditions. No matter what their origin, common hand problems that interfere with daily activities are always a cause for concern. Since no two conditions are exactly alike, we make a careful diagnosis before we begin treatment. Our experience and expertise in the latest procedures and technologies enable us to provide superior care to patients of all ages..
