Hand, Wrist & Elbow Center of Excellence

Fort Myers Orthopedic Specialists

Any injury or medical condition that affects your hand, wrist or elbow can potentially impact your quality of life. And for those who work with their hands, any injury or syndrome can impact their livelihood, including hand, wrist, and elbow surgeons!

Whether your condition is complex or simple, the experts at OSSWF have the training and experience to diagnose and treat your condition. Not all conditions require surgery. Many can be treated conservatively with nonsurgical treatments including medications, splints, therapy, and injections.

Hand, Wrist and Elbow Pain

Hand, wrist, and elbow pain are commonly due to fractures, strains, sprains, wear and tear, repetitive stress, arthritis, trapped nerves, damaged ligaments and tendons, and stress fractures.

Common conditions we treat include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tennis elbow
  • Sprains and strains
  • Sports injuries
  • Fractures of the hand, finger, thumb, and wrist
  • Trigger finger, a condition where one or more fingers get stuck in a bent position
  • Arthritis

Not all of these conditions require surgery and we recommend the most conservative treatment options possible to achieve good outcomes including medication, splints, therapy, or injections.
