Hand Surgery

When pain in your hands, wrists, elbows and other areas of your upper extremities makes normal activity difficult, Orthopedic Services at Glendale Adventist Medical Center can help.

The complex design of bones, joint, muscles and nerves of the upper extremity (hands, wrist, elbow and shoulder) give us a wide range of movement, strength and coordination allowing us to perform small, delicate tasks as well as strong, forceful labor. Injuries and pain in the upper extremity can not only stop you from working or participating in leisure activities, but can also make the basic things we do each day like dressing, bathing, preparing a meal or driving difficult if not impossible. 

GAMC has upper extremity specialists that provide both surgical and non-surgical options to treat hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder conditions and injuries including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Burns
  • Trigger fingers
  • Arthritis and other, more complex problems.

Patients benefit from the collaboration between orthopedic surgeons, hand surgeons, vascular surgeons and plastic surgeons as well as occupational physical therapists who specialize in treating the upper extremity.
