The hand and wrist surgery team offers the kind of the orthopedic expertise and experience, as well as access to the latest technology, that you have come to expect from White Plains Hospital.
We use the least invasive approach needed to treat your condition and control your pain, in an effort to help make your stay in the Hospital and your recovery as quick and efficient as possible.
Our hand and wrist care team is dedicated to working with you throughout the entire process, from pre-surgery to surgery and post-surgery treatment and therapy. We are committed to discussing the best plan to not only alleviate your pain; we also aim to restore normal function whenever possible. If an injury or accident does require an operation, our team will work to establish the underlying cause of the problem and then recommend the best course of treatment. We treat patients of all ages, from children to adults.
