3 Things Your Hand Surgeon Wants

3 Things Your Hand Surgeon Wants You to Know:

《1.》Not every visit to the hand doctor results in surgery.
We often take a conservative approach to medicine. This means that we will try nonsurgical methods to treat you first. It is only when those methods fail to provide relief that we will consider surgical options.

《2.》 Don’t delay in getting treatment.
Sure, some minor aches and pains can resolve themselves with home treatment and support. But they shouldn’t last for three or four weeks. Delaying treatment can result in more extensive damage. If you have weakness or numbness, you should also give us a call.
《3.》It’s vital to follow through with physical therapy.
Physical therapy is an important part of your recovery. Following our treatment plan will ensure the best results and a smooth transition into regular activity.
