Diagnose, Manage and Correct Conditions

The surgeons at RHSI bring state-of-the-art diagnosis, treatment and care for upper extremity disorders. Specially trained and board certified physicians and their support staff use procedures to diagnose, manage and correct conditions which can literally run from the fingertips to the shoulder.

Treatment of the hand, wrist, shoulder and elbow is a highly specialized field that deals with a broad set of conditions and symptoms. Many problems encountered in the upper extremity are amenable to non-operative treatments such as medications, injections, splinting, and therapy.
