Surgical Treatment

Surgical Treatment of the Hand, Wrist, Elbow and ShoulderAbout Us

Surgery is often the best option to effectively treat your hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder problem. Orthopedic surgeons at Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center have a wealth of knowledge and experience necessary to recommend and perform the appropriate surgery for each patient. In fact, our surgeons are innovators and recognized internationally for their surgical expertise.

As pioneers in orthopedic surgery, they have developed prosthetic devices, surgical techniques, and surgical instruments that are used around the world. They are trained and experienced in performing the most advanced techniques and using the latest technology. For example, new technology and techniques associated with joint replacement or reconstruction surgery can help patients recover more quickly from surgery and regain more of their normal function.

Our goal is to help our patients relieve their pain and regain function of their hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder. We will always explore conservative treatment first, and will consider surgery only if necessary.
