Hand and Upper Extremity Care for Workers

We are committed to providing workers with the highest level of surgical and nonsurgical care for their elbow, hand, and wrist injuries. Our physicians are highly trained experts who will work with you and your employer to help you achieve maximum recovery from your job-related injury.

If you are injured at work, contact your employer and obtain a claim number. Once you have been authorized to be treated by our practice, we will schedule an appointment for you to be seen as soon as possible by one of our physicians.

At each visit, our patients are seen by a physician—not a nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant. Therefore, all aspects of your care, including surgery, therapy, and return to work, will be directly overseen by your physician.

Having a well-trained hand surgeon can make all of the difference in pursuing the correct treatment and achieving the best possible outcome. Whether helping you recover from a minor condition or a major injury, let our expertise work on your behalf to help you regain the ability to function in life and at work.
