Hand Surgery


We all know our hands play a major role in our daily lives. Our fellowship-trained hand surgeons understand the complexity of the many bones, ligaments and muscles that give our hands their movement and dexterity.

Our surgeons offer reconstructive surgery of the hand, wrist and elbow.

They treat injuries such as broken bones and sports-related injuries of the hand and elbow.

They also expertly treat chronic conditions like arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Both Dr. William Rogers and Dr. John Thaller have advanced training in the latest and most innovative surgical techniques for treating the hand, wrist and elbow. They can help you determine which procedure is best for you.

What is Hand Surgery?

Hand surgery is an advanced subspecialty of orthopaedic surgery involving specialized surgical techniques. The goal is to restore pain-free function for the broad spectrum of diseases involving the hand, wrist and elbow.

Despite the title, a hand surgeon does more than just operate on the hand.

Hand surgery is a subspecialty of orthopaedic surgery that encompasses nearly all of the upper extremity.

A hand surgeon has very advanced training to operate on all structures in the arm, including nerves and blood vessels as well as bones, ligaments and tendons.
