The physicians at the Kansas Hand Center of Premier Plastic Surgery are pleased to provide conservative and surgical treatment for the following conditions:
Our patients come to us for evaluation of numbness, tingling, swelling, pain and or stiffness in the wrist, hands or fingers. This pattern of symptoms helps our physicians determine the cause and the particular area (neck, elbow, wrist, hand) that may be the source of the problem. Numbness and Tingling in the Forearm, Wrist, Hands or Fingers may be caused by the following:
The most common cause of numbness and tingling in our patients is due to a compressive neuropathy, especially carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome. Local pressure applied on a particular nerve can compress the numbness and tingling.
Our wrist and hands are very complex structures and when healthy move with ease and allow us to effortlessly perform thousands of intricate movements every day. However, when conditions cause stiffness in the wrist, hands or fingers these intricate movements may become difficult to perform limiting our activities of daily living.
Problems that affect joint structures in the wrist, hand and fingers can result in stiffness and limited movement. Normal, healthy joints have precise shaped matching surfaces that are covered with a smooth layer of cartilage which allow pain free and full range of motion. Problems that affect the joint surfaces or the cartilage can alter the normal contour of the joint causing stiffness and loss of motion. Tendon and muscle injuries can cause them to get scarred down to the surrounding joint causing stiffness and resulting in loss of motion as well.
