doctor helping patientHow do I know if hand or wrist surgery is right for me?

Most people with musculoskeletal and arthritis-related problems in their hands or wrists won't need surgery. The orthopedic surgeons at Newport Orthopedic Institute may recommend surgery for a number of reasons, in addition to restoring proper function. The decision whether to operate or not will depend on if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Congenital (present at birth) deformities
  • Infections
  • Pain or loss of function
  • Trauma to the hand or wrist
  • Your response to other non-surgical treatments (medication, splinting and physical therapy)
