Hand and Wrist Specialist in Fort Mill
Providing Care for Hand and Wrist Pain
We use our hands and wrists a lot, as they are in constant motion grasping, reaching, and carrying items. As a result, they are often susceptible to injuries such as sprains and fractures. They can also be prone to overuse conditions such as tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Problems can also occur in the hand muscles and joints. Hands can be affected by normal wear and tear on the joints resulting in arthritis.
At SpecOrtho, our hand specialist is highly trained to diagnose and treat all types of hand and wrist problems. Our hand surgeon has extensive experience in the delicate procedures required to relieve hand pain, repair nerve injuries, and restore or preserve your normal function to the hands and wrists.
It’s critical to have issues related to the hand corrected properly, should they arise. This is to prevent permanent damage which could result in the loss of strength and dexterity. With 27 small bones in the hand – alongside muscles, tendons and other tissue that must work together – it’s easy to ignore an issue which could make the damage even worse.

What can I Expect for Hand or Wrist Surgery?
Hand surgery is performed in an accredited surgical facility typically as an outpatient procedure. The hand condition or injury being treated will dictate the surgical technique used and will vary by case. After hand surgery, the recovery period will also vary depending on the patient and severity of the condition. However, physical therapy could be prescribed to help patients regain strength, mobility and function.
