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.

Stated 50/50 surgery chance with 50 being totally resolved and 50 it remaining the same. Actually he crippled my arm/hand during a standard ulnar nerve transposition. Suffered immense paint from two of his botched surgeries and listed to his lies which did not show on surgical notes. Very nice person, but horrible results and the lying is unacceptable! Still in pain, muscles have wasted away and no control over last two digits. Can't sue him because he is protected by the State of Florida and Sovereign Immunity! BE WARNED!
