Dr. Michael LeGeyt: Our Hand, Wrist & Elbow Specialist
Helping Patients Restore Function and Mobility
You depend on your hands to perform countless tasks each day. In the absence of pain or injury, you may take their amazing abilities for granted. Your hands and wrists contain an intricate network of nerves and blood vessels, as well as bones and tendons, ligaments, and muscles, some of which extend to the elbow.
Wrist injuries, hand disorders, and elbow conditions are common and can cause pain, loss of sensation, loss of movement, and impaired function. The constant motion of your hands and wrists also makes them susceptible to repetitive motion disorders and arthritis. Problems in these areas must be carefully treated because of all the structures and functions involved.
