Dr. Terry R Light has the following 3 specialties
- Orthopaedic Surgery
- Surgery of the Hand
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.

Dr. Light has given my son a more functional left hand as well as cosmetically making the hand look more "normal." My son was born with a cleft hand on the left side only, and after our initial shock, we were worried about not only the functionality, but also the social aspect of having a limb deformity. Dr. Light addressed the psychological concerns for us parents as well as what he could do to give my son a more functional hand. After two consultations about what he could do, the surgery went extremely well and follow-up care has been unmatched. Dr. Light and his team not only work through Loyola, but also through Shriner's. This makes him accessible to a large number of families who may need his expertise and guidance. We could not have asked for a better experience and I would recommend him as a leading expert to any families who may have children with hand abnormalities.
