How We Take Care of Your Hands, Wrists and Elbows

Pain can feel like tingling fingers, sensations of burning, numbness or weakness along the elbows, hands and wrists. Some of these symptoms could mean you have or are developing carpal tunnel syndrome.

The Avera Orthopedics team is here to help you find relief and prevent more serious problems from happening. We will guide you through diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Treatment plans are tailored to your unique circumstances and goals – meaning you can heal faster.

Minimally Invasive Procedures

If nonsurgical treatment doesn’t relieve painful symptoms with carpal tunnel syndrome or other conditions, minimally invasive surgery may resolve the discomfort. Orthopedic surgeons and hand specialists will determine if this route is necessary with an exam, X-ray and consultation. Thanks to technological advances, more hand, wrist and elbow conditions can be treated this way. This may involve small incisions and less muscle damage.

When you know what to expect with recovery, better outcomes are possible. Your orthopedic care team will help you plan for what comes next after surgery.
