Hand specialists are orthopedic surgeons who have the training and expertise to diagnose and treat injuries and problems that impact the complex relationships within the joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and nerves of the hand. At Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, our hand doctors and surgeons have the advanced specialty training and experience to treat common and complex injuries and conditions of the hand with nonsurgical and surgical treatments to relieve your hand pain.
Chronic conditions like arthritis or extremely disruptive conditions like Dupuytren's contracture benefit greatly from the deep level of expertise that our hand doctors can offer, since our hand doctors have an extensive understanding of the hand and its impact on surrounding areas of the upper extremity such as the wrist and elbow. They are trained to treat common conditions and complex cases with conservative treatments or complex surgeries if necessary.
