Hand and Wrist Conditions

Following are a few of the hand and wrist conditions our physicians treat.

Distal radius fracture

Distal radius fracture

Distal radius fractures affect the wrist joint and are often caused by a fall onto an outstretched hand. As many people unconsciously try to break their fall with their hands, distal radius fractures are relatively common. Treatment ranges from casting for stable fractures to surgical intervention for displaced or complex fractures, aiming to restore proper alignment and function.

Scaphoid fracture

Scaphoid fracture

Scaphoid fractures usually result from a fall on an outstretched hand. Due to limited blood supply to the scaphoid, proper diagnosis and treatment are crucial. Treatment is often immobilization, or a cast, but some fractures may require surgery to promote optimal healing.

De Quervain’s tendinosis

De Quervain’s tendinosis

De Quervain’s tendinosis involves irritation of the tendons around the base of the thumb and is often caused by repetitive thumb and wrist movements. Rest, splinting, and anti-inflammatory measures are initial steps for treatment, but if symptoms persist, corticosteroid injections or surgical release may be recommended.

Trigger finger

Trigger finger

Trigger finger results from inflammation of the tendon sheath, hindering smooth finger movement. Repetitive motions and conditions like diabetes can contribute to this condition. Conservative approaches include splinting and anti-inflammatory medications, however, severe cases may require corticosteroid injections or surgical release.

Thumb (Carpometacarpal) osteoarthritis

Thumb (Carpometacarpal) osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis affecting the base of the thumb is often associated with aging and joint wear, and typically occurs due to overuse or having a genetic disposition. Conservative measures like splinting, medications, and joint protection can manage symptoms. In advanced cases, surgical options may be considered.

Dupuytren’s contracture

Dupuytren’s contracture

Dupuytren’s contracture involves the thickening of the tissue beneath the skin of the palm, leading to finger contractures. The exact cause is unclear but may involve genetic and environmental factors. Treatment ranges from observation for mild cases to interventions like collagenase injections or surgery for contracture release.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks the joints, causing inflammation. The exact cause is unknown, but genetics and environmental factors play a role. Management involves medications to control inflammation, pain, and disease progression. In severe cases, joint replacement surgeries may be considered.

Osteoarthritis columbia


Osteoarthritis in the hip involves the gradual breakdown of joint cartilage, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. It is commonly associated with aging, wear and tear, and genetic factors. Conservative measures include pain management, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications. In advanced cases, hip replacement surgery may be considered over the counter to alleviate pain and restore function.
