Hand & Ortho Plastics

Atlanta's Hand Specialists

Treating hand, wrist, and forearm injuries requires special expertise.  Grady’s team of the best hand surgeons in Atlanta diagnose, treat, and prevent disorders in the hand, wrist, and forearm. They have a deep knowledge of the networks of blood vessels, nerves, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones that make up the hand and fingers.

Our expert hand surgeons work with patients who have experienced a hand injury, suffer a hand condition, or have mobility problems or chronic pain. Some conditions and injuries are short-term. Others require ongoing treatment. Generally, you should contact a hand specialist if you have the following symptoms:

  • Pain or discomfort, even when your hand is resting
  • Chronic pain or stiffness when you start an activity
  • Reduced range of motion in your hand, wrist, or fingers
  • A weakened grip
  • Pain that extends to the elbow
  • Tingling or numbness in your fingers or hand

Our Services

Our experience with hand and wrist injuries and conditions is broad. We routinely treat:

  • All types of trauma or infections from the elbow to the fingertips like tendon and nerve lacerations, fingertip injuries, ligament injuries, fractures and dislocations, and flexor tenosynovitis, an infection of the tendon sheath.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often caused by frequent repetitive movements, which can cause numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and arm.
  • Scaphoid fractures or breaks the small bones of the wrist, which can cause pain and tenderness in the area just below the base of the thumb.
  • Boxer’s fractures or breaks to the bones in the hand.
  • Chronic conditions, including:
    • Thumb arthritis can cause severe pain, swelling, and decreased strength and range of motion, making it difficult to do simple tasks like turning doorknobs and opening jars.
    • Trigger finger, when fingers get stuck in a bent position
    • Dupuytren’s disease is a thickening of the skin that can cause one or more fingers to curl or pull sideways.
    • Ganglion cysts are non-cancerous lumps that can form on the tendons or joints of wrists and hands. While they often go away on their own, some ganglion cysts can be painful if they press on a nerve. Sometimes, they can interfere with joint movement.
