Be assured that our medical team will always consider nonsurgical treatment first. It is only after your injury or disorder does not improve that we look at other options, including surgery. Our goal is to treat your problem in the least invasive manner in order to help relieve your pain and enhance your lifestyle.

Most hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder problems can be effectively treated through nonsurgical care. Orthopedic physicians at Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center have extensive training and experience in evaluating and diagnosing these problems to determine the best treatment plan.
