Bones in the hand and wrist can break during contact sports, falls on an outstretched hand, motor vehicle accidents, and other traumas. Fractures may be accompanied by injuries to nearby tendons, ligaments, nerves, vessels, and other structures and can range from simple to complex. In severe cases, fractures may be open, meaning that bone fragments pierce the skin. Open fractures require immediate medical attention. Our hand and wrist specialists offer an array of treatments for these injuries, from splinting to surgery.
