Services & Treatment

Hand Surgery of Northern Michigan offers treatment for disorders of the hand and upper extremity.

Although many people with hand injuries or disease see a primary care or emergency room physician first, a specialist may be best suited to treat such conditions.

Depending on the problem, treatment varies. Non-surgical approaches offer solutions for many of our patients. These include:

  • casts or splints
  • cortisone injections
  • hand therapy
  • medication: analgesics/antibiotics.

For more severe situations, surgery may be required. We perform:

  • full surgical procedures
  • arthroscopy and microvascular surgery

When appropriate, we prescribe occupational therapy with our certified hand therapists.
