Conditions We Treat

  • Flexor Tendon Injuries

    The tendons in our upper extremities work overtime, helping us perform important tasks all day, every day. When they are injured, it can severely impact the use of our fingers and hands. Our experienced team will help you regain function and get back to the things you love.

  • Shoulder Instability

    Our shoulders have the greatest range of motion of any joint in our bodies­­–they’re the reason we can rotate our arms in so many directions and do a wide-variety of activities. But, this range of motion results in less stability, which can be caused by overuse or sudden injury. Our experts will help you regain function and stability with treatments individualized to your needs.

  • Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

    The ulnar nerve allows for straightening and bending and forearm rotation, and runs from your neck all the way down into your hand. When your ulnar nerve becomes compressed or irritated, you may experience numbness, grip weakening, or muscle wasting. The providers at the Upper Extremity Program will diagnose and treat your nerve entrapment with non-surgical and surgical treatment options.
