Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

I've used Dr. Edwards twice: once when I was losing strength in my left hand and again when I had exquisite pain in my right index finger end joint for over six months. On both occasions his diagnosis was correct: the problem with my left hand was actually in my elbow and function was restored after surgery; the right index finger had a cyst in it and had to be pinned after which it has been pain free. I can do everything with it except pick up a dime which is what Dr. Edwards promised if I did my rehab. I am facing surgery again on both hands due to cysts occurring at the large joints in my fingers . I feel he has given me an honest assessment as to what I can expect in the way of pain relief and possible recurrence. I have confidence in him after past experience with his work.
