About a quarter of the motor cortex in the human brain (the part of the brain which controls all movement in the body) is devoted to the muscles of the hands. The hand is a multifaceted arrangement of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Consider the versatility of the hand – it can perform a diverse range of tasks, carry heavy loads and impact every aspect of our life – and whether the result of years of wear or a sudden injury, it can have a tremendous impact on how we live.
Our hand and upper extremity expertise is in nerve compression, overuse, repetitive injuries, sports injuries and arthritis of the upper extremity. Dr. Jones and Dr. Ablove perform multiple surgical procedures including: shoulder, wrist and hand arthroplasty, minimally invasive surgeries including endoscopic carpal tunnel release and wrist surgery. Both surgeons are available to discuss diagnosis and treatment options with referring physicians and patients.
