Our hands enable us to do all sorts of things that humans need to do. Figuratively, we can lend a helping hand, earn money hand over fist, throw up our hands, and even talk with our hands.
More literally, we use our hands to accomplish many amazing tasks. With 27 small bones (8 in the wrist and 19 in the hand itself) and their related nerves, tendons, muscles and ligaments, we put our hands to use manipulating objects in our environment. With hands, we can cradle our children, grip a garden trowel, type a report, grab a baseball bat, and so much more.
At Southlake Orthopaedics, we have physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of your hands, wrists and forearms. They are experts in hand surgery, which is a sub-specialty of orthopaedics requiring additional training dealing with complexities of hand anatomy and micro-vascular conditions.
