Hand and wrist care

Your hands are amazing tools. Every touch, twist, pinch and grip is a coordinated ballet of bones, joints, muscles, nerves, tendons and blood vessels. So when something goes wrong with these delicate instruments, it’s essential to turn to someone with the expertise to heal them. You’ll find just that kind of expertise right here at Great Plains Health.

Our hand and wrist specialists

Our team includes the only hand specialist in our region. This means you don’t have to travel far from home to get an advanced level of orthopaedic care.

And you won’t wait long to get the care you need when you’re hurting. We can typically get you in for an appointment within one week.

If your hand or wrist problem can be helped without surgery, we will try that first. Our certified hand therapist works with our hand surgeon to provide non-surgical treatment options, such as medicines, lifestyle choices, and braces and splints. Our hand therapist can make a custom hand orthotic for you the same day you see the surgeon.

If you need surgery, you can get expert care from our hand surgeon, who is fellowship-trained in hand and microsurgery. We use the latest treatments to spare muscle, repair injuries, and save or restore movement and feeling with the goal of helping you use your hands comfortably again.
