They say the hand is the tool of the mind. It is the primary way we interact with our physical world. For all of the important things hands do we tend to take them for granted until there is a problem. Tendinitis, nerve compression, injury, and arthritis all contribute to issues in our hands that range from numbness to limited motion and deformity.
Because of the complex nature of the wrist joint which is comprised of eight small carpal bones and multiple ligaments accurate diagnosis of injuries can be very difficult. With proper imaging modalities including x-ray, CT scan, and MRI and a trained surgeon wrist injuries can be diagnosed and treated. Our facility features all imaging modalities for the most comprehensive treatment.
Some wrist conditions can be treated without surgery. If the injury requires surgery, our surgeons are experienced in various techniques including arthroscopy or the wrist, innovative surgery for dislocations and fractures, and reconstructive techniques for arthritis. Dr. Alani has over 20 years of experience with treating carpal tunnel syndrome, ganglion cyst, fractures, sports injuries, and trigger finger.
