Conditions We Treat

UCL tears and injury

Distal biceps rupture

Olecranon bursitis

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by swelling in the wrist that puts pressure on the median nerve. The median nerve runs through the wrist and into the hand. This pressure interferes with the healthy transport of nerve signals, which results in pain and numbness in the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome is typically caused by repetitive movements, and is common in people that work with their hands, such as massage therapists, office workers, and students.

Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)

Tennis elbow is not limited to only tennis players. Tennis elbow, also called lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition in which the tendons of the elbow are inflamed, causing pain that can spread to the wrist and up the arm. Tennis elbow is usually caused by repetitive motions, and it appears commonly in painters and carpenters as well as athletes. Treatments for tennis elbow range from ice and rest to surgical intervention.

Medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)

Golfer’s elbow, which is very similar to tennis elbow, is characterized by pain on the inside of the elbow where the tendons of the forearm attach to the elbow. Golfer’s elbow is an overuse injury caused by repetitive clenching of the fingers.

De Quervain’s disease

De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis is a condition that’s also referred to as “mother’s thumb” or “gamer’s thumb.” This condition causes extreme pain in the vicinity of the wrist and thumb. De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis is caused by the repetitive use of the hands and wrist.

Dupuytren’s disease

Dupuytren’s contracture is a slow-developing hand deformity characterized by the permanently bent position of the fourth and fifth fingers. Dupuytren’s contracture is caused when knots form in the tissue under the skin of the palm, which eventually pulls the fingers out of position.

Trigger finger

Trigger finger is a condition in which a finger is stuck in a bent position. Trigger finger is also known as stenosing tenosynovitis, and it is caused by a narrowing of the sheath that covers the tendon in the affected finger. People with diabetes or those who do repetitive gripping motions are more likely to develop trigger finger.

TFCC tears

Scapholunate ligament tears

Scaphoid and distal radius fractures

Complex Hand, Wrist and Elbow injuries

Arthritis of the hand and wrist

Arthritis is the degeneration of the joints that leads to pain, stiffness, and loss of range of motion. Arthritis of the hand is very common, and it greatly affects sufferers’ quality of life, as the hands are involved in most tasks we undertake every day. There are many treatments for arthritis of the hand that can greatly improve symptoms, reduce pain and improve mobility.

Fracture of the Finger

Broken fingers are one of the most common hand injuries BICMD physicians see. Though breaking a finger is a common injury that seems minor, if not treated correctly, a broken finger can cause significant functional issues for the hand as a whole that continue long term. Quick, adequate diagnosis and treatment of a finger fracture from one of our BICMD orthopedic specialists can help preserve the function of your hand and eliminate the risk of long-term pain and stiffness.
