Expert Care for Hand and Wrist Fractures
Bones in the hand or wrist can break during contact sports or from falls, especially if you fall onto your outstretched hand. Trauma such as a car accident can also cause severe hand or wrist fractures. Breaks can range from simple, stable fractures to complicated breaks in which the bone is shattered into many pieces. In some cases, a bone fragment can pierce the skin.
Our orthopaedic specialists treat the full range of hand and wrist fractures. Imaging, such as X-ray or MRI, is used to assess your injury and help us determine the best way to proceed with your care.
