Bones in the hand or wrist can break during contact sports or from falls, especially if you fall onto an outstretched hand. Trauma such as a car accident can also lead to severe hand or wrist injury. Fractures may also be related to soft or connective tissue injuries. Fractures can range from simple and stable to complex and even open, in which a bony fragment pierces 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.
