Hand & Wrist Surgery

The most important tool you own

Injuries and conditions that limit the use of your hands can be frustrating as well as debilitating.  Plastic surgeon, Joseph Meyerson, MD, uses his specialized training in hand and wrist surgery to relieve pain, restore function to the hand and restore quality of life.

Steps to ensure your safety

Our COVID-19 response ensures that every person entering the hospital and clinics is screened for temperature and respiratory illness symptoms.  Universal masking is in place for all patients, visitors, and employees.  Exam rooms and waiting areas receive extra cleanings and we have created physical distancing between patients.

Hand conditions and injuries

Hand conditions can be acute, such as fractures or lacerations or chronic, like arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Critical in assessing a patient’s hand complaint, is understanding the issue, the patient’s job and hobbies. Once a thorough history and physical is completed then patient and surgeon can create a plan to relieve hand and wrist pain, using therapists, nonsurgical therapies and surgery.
