The hands, wrists and elbows can present a wide range of conditions characterized by pain, tingling, loss of sensation, and impaired function. Due to the complex structure of these regions—which are comprised of a compact system of interconnected bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, and muscles—intricate surgical procedures must be performed with the utmost care and attention to detail. Our fellowship-trained hand surgeons, Drs. Shamash and Fakharzadeh are skilled and experienced in a wide variety of surgical techniques designed to address specific concerns related to the hands, wrists, and elbows.
Most commonly, patients seek our expertise in the treatment of hand, wrist and elbow fractures, tendinitis due to overuse injury, trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve/tendon lacerations, and osteoarthritis as well as ligament injuries requiring arthroscopic wrist surgery.
If you need to see one of our fellowship-trained hand surgeons about a physical condition or injury related to your hand, wrist, or elbow, please contact us at Garden State Orthopaedic Associates to schedule an appointment.
