Hand, Wrist, and Elbow Surgery

South Shore Health physicians are experts in diagnosing and treating conditions and injuries of the hand, wrist and elbow (also known as the “upper extremities”). Most injuries can be treated without surgery, but when surgery is needed, our fellowship-trained orthopedic hand surgeons have extensive experience caring for hands and wrists of adults and children. 

We offer the full spectrum of treatments from non-operative management, to the most advanced minimally invasive surgical treatment options. Our goal is to restore function and get you back to your normal activities as quickly as possible.
