Make an Appointment

Hands are essential in the day-to-day activities of life—but if you experience a disease or injury in your hands, it can be severely debilitating. Each orthopedic hand doctor at Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta understands your plight and will channel their knowledge and expertise toward seeing you fully recover from injuries, and manage conditions wisely. No matter your situation, be it a sprained wrist, arthritis in the hands, or more complex issues like ulnar nerve entrapment or a Dupuytren’s contracture—the Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta team has seen it all. From carpal tunnel treatment to De Quervain’s tendonitis, Atlanta’s hand surgery specialists can help you recover!

Your fingers, hand and wrist consist of an intricate arrangement of joints, cartilage, and bones that must work together to accomplish functions we can easily take for granted. We depend on our hands for their flexibility and coordination when typing and writing. Muscle strength enables us to bend or straighten our wrist, and to grasp and grip objects. When something goes wrong with any of the joints, cartilage, or bones in the hand or wrist, suddenly simple tasks can become a chore.

Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists and physical therapists provide comprehensive surgical and non-surgical medical care for a wide spectrum of disorders and injuries of the fingers, hand, wrist, and lower arm. Using the latest techniques and treatment methods, our orthopedic surgeons and physiatrists provide a comprehensive solution for recovery of hand and wrist injury and disorder. Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta physicians and staff will explore nonsurgical treatment options such as physical therapy. Many OrthoAtlanta offices include certified Hand Therapists on staff.

Don't wait any longer to decide what to do about the pain in your hands. Or, in the event of a painful sprained wrist, don't hesitate to rely on the care and timely expertise of the Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta team to help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
