Fractures of the Hand & Wrist Katy TX
Fractures of the upper extremity are one of the most common reasons for ER visits and are oftentimes caused by a fall or sports injury. These must be treated in a timely manner to allow for early return of function and reduce the risk of long term disability including arthritis, instability, and chronic pain.
The most common fractures of the upper extremity include finger fractures, hand fractures, and distal radius fractures. Treatment for these fractures varies depending on the location, the type of fracture and the degree of instability. At The Hand & Plastic Surgery Center of Katy, our hand surgeons are experienced in treating all types of upper extremity fractures including small joint finger fractures, metacarpal fractures, scaphoid and other wrist fractures, as well as distal radius fractures. They will work with you to obtain the proper diagnosis and determine a tailored treatment plan that fits your needs. During your recovery, our physicians exclusively use Certified Hand Therapists to assist in your rehabilitation and to help you restore the function lost by injury.
If you have sustained a fracture of the hand, wrist, or distal radius, please call our office today at 832-232-HAND (4263) to be evaluated by Dr. Das or Dr. Stephenson.
