Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition characterized by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist, leading to pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and fingers. At OSSM, our specialized surgeons are skilled in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. Through surgical interventions such as carpal tunnel release, we alleviate pressure on the nerve, restoring sensation and function to the affected hand.
Chronic wrist pain can be caused by various factors, including repetitive strain injuries, ligament tears, tendonitis, or previous trauma. At OSSM, our dedicated team of specialists is experienced in diagnosing and treating chronic wrist pain. Through comprehensive evaluations and advanced imaging techniques, we identify the underlying causes and develop personalized treatment plans. Our goal is to alleviate pain and improve wrist function through a combination of non-surgical interventions such as physical therapy, medication, and, if necessary, minimally invasive surgical procedures.
Arthritis is a condition characterized by inflammation and degeneration of the joints, including the wrist. Wrist arthritis can cause pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion, affecting daily activities. At OSSM, our orthopedic specialists are skilled in managing wrist arthritis. Through a multidisciplinary approach, we offer a range of treatment options tailored to each patient’s needs. These may include medications, joint injections, splinting, physical therapy, and, if conservative measures are ineffective, surgical interventions such as wrist arthroscopy or joint replacement.
