St. Luke's Clinic – Orthopedics - Hand & Wrist

Our integrated team of specialty trained physicians, physician assistants, therapists, and medical assistants collaborates to evaluate and treat common and complex conditions of the fingers, hands, wrist, forearm, and elbow. Our goal is to provide you with knowledge and understanding to help you recover from injury or impairment. We’ll evaluate your goals, occupations, and hobbies to develop a personalized treatment plan as a cornerstone to a successful outcome. As surgeons, we focus first on non-surgical management of your condition whenever it’s safe and effective.

We specialize in conditions such as arthritis (degenerative, traumatic and inflammatory); compression neuropathy (carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome); fractures and sprains of the fingers, hand, and wrist; and lacerations, ruptures, and triggering of hand and wrist tendons and nerves. We also manage masses and lesions (cysts, ganglions and deformity), pediatric congenital deformity, sports injuries (fractures, sprains and dislocations), and stiffness.
