Hand Problems

The Raleigh Hand to Shoulder Center physicians have treated patients with hand and upper extremity problems for three decades. From a minor cut to a severe hand injury, we have been specialty-trained to diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate patients with a variety of hand and arm problems. The hand is one of the most intricate and delicate areas of the human body, comprised of nineteen bones in addition to joints, tendons, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. As you know, our hands are critical for independent function and livelihood. An alteration in the normal function of the hand can significantly impact a person’s life. At the RHSC, we strive to improve a patient’s quality of life through effective non-surgical and surgical treatments. We work personally with on-site hand therapists to optimize outcomes. High-level and recreational athletes alike have been treated successfully at our center.
