Orthopaedics: Hand & Wrist
Beebe hand and wrist specialists can assess an ongoing issue or a sudden injury in their offices. If surgery is needed, they perform procedures at the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus. In addition, Beebe Physical Rehabilitation Services can work with you both at their multiple locations throughout Sussex County and in your home through Beebe Home Care Services.
Common Hand & Wrist Procedures:
- Fracture surgery
- Trigger finger release
- Carpal tunnel release
- Wrist replacement
In addition to these procedures, Beebe orthopaedists are able to treat a variety of ongoing conditions, including Dupuytren’s contracture. The contracture is named after Baron Gillaume Dupuytren, the first surgeon to operate on this hand deformity in the early 1800s. Dupuytren’s contracture symptoms include having the palm of your hand become gradually tighter and thicker. Eventually, your fingers, especially your pinky and ring fingers, may curl inward. This can make it hard to use your hand, put on gloves, or even put your hand in your pocket.
