Hand surgery is one of the most intricate types of orthopedic surgeries. The hand is a complex arrangement of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels, which can be as small as 1 to 2 millimeters in diameter. The Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group hand care unit is led by board certified doctors with extensive, prestigious training and many years of experience mastering the details of hand biomechanics. Our patients receive expert diagnoses, surgical and non-surgical treatments, and specialized hand therapy after surgery. This results in the best possible recovery and regaining of normal hand function.
Common hand, wrist, and elbow problems include carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, tendinitis, arthritis, trigger finger, cysts, Dequervain’s disease, Dupuytren's contracture, fractures, tears, and lacerations. We perform a wide variety of specialized surgeries to alleviate these conditions, including carpal tunnel release, elbow and wrist arthroscopy, tendon surgery, trigger finger release, joint replacement, needle injections, cyst and tumor removal, fracture care, wound repair, and more.
Microvascular surgery most often involves the hand but can also be performed on any part of the body that needs to be reattached. In these procedures, blood vessels are reconnected with each other, which restores circulation to the severed part before tissue death occurs. Our surgeons are experienced in the precise techniques required to achieve successful results for our patients who need this type of surgery.
