Expert hand and upper extremity care
Many daily activities require the correct performance of the muscles, nerves, joints and bones of the upper extremity. Unfortunately, this area of the human body is highly vulnerable to injury. At the Brigham and Women’s Orthopedic Center at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, our physicians explore every non-operative option for hand and upper extremity injuries before considering surgical intervention. And if surgery is necessary, Brigham and Women’s physicians do everything possible to restore you to an active lifestyle.
