DOC surgeons are #1 in hand surgery in South Florida, and possibly the United States and beyond. A skilled surgeon is important when addressing carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, De Quervain’s tendinitis, mallet finger, or basal joint arthritis.
Surgery may be recommended if symptoms are severe or do not improve with conservative treatment.
Oftentimes, surgery of the hand is misunderstood by the public. People think they will lose function in their hand if they have surgery. The truth is that hand surgery is extremely successful when performed by a well trained surgeon.
An arthroscopic evaluation gives the surgeon the true stage of the condition, and may well lead to the treatment options.
Hand surgery is done on an outpatient basis, meaning you will not need to stay overnight at the hospital. The surgery is performed at the surgery center at the DOC.
