Advanced surgical solutions

The skilled surgeons at the Orthopaedic Institute perform a wide variety of hand and wrist procedures using the most advanced surgical solutions, including:

  • Basal joint reconstruction – a common procedure with long-lasting results, this surgical treatment removes arthritis in the basal joint of the thumb and is very effective in eliminating pain.
  • Carpal tunnel release – a surgical treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome. The surgery has a high success rate and most patients experience excellent recovery within months after the procedure.
  • Cubital tunnel release – a procedure that alleviates the symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome, a condition that occurs when the ulnar nerve in your elbow is pinched in one of several locations.
  • Dupuytren's release – a surgical treatment for Dupuytren's disease that allows for improved movement of the tendons affected by the disease and increases finger mobility.
