Orthopedic Hand Surgeons in Knoxville, Tennessee

Our Specialty

Board-Certified Hand and Wrist Surgeons

The hands and wrists comprise a complex tendons, joints, and bones system. Therefore, if you have experienced an injury, suffer from hand or wrist arthritis, or have a possible wrist fracture, it is essential to seek the help of a board-certified orthopedic wrist specialist. The Fellowship-Trained orthopedic specialists at Tennessee Orthopaedic offer surgical treatment for various hand and wrist subspecialties.

Who Should See a Hand Surgeon?

We recommend that anyone experiencing chronic or acute pain interfering with daily activities make an appointment to see one of our specialists at one of our eastern Tennessee orthopedic clinics. You should see an orthopedist for wrist or hand pain impacting your daily life, preventing you from performing small taks, affecting your sleep, and because conservative treatments like NSAIDs or physical therapy have not alleviated wrist pain symptoms. Seek medical treatment if you believe you’ve fractured your hand or wrist.

Hand and Wrist Conditions Treated in Knoxville

  • Joint pain in your fingers or wrist
  • Numbness, tingling, pain, or weakness in the thumb
  • A decline in movement of fingers, hand, or wrist
  • Pain between your knuckles on top of the hand
  • Constant finger pain from typing too much
  • Hand or wrist pain from a repetitive motion hobby, like
  • crocheting or gaming
  • A recent injury to the hand or wrist

If you are experiencing these symptoms, it’s essential to know that lessening movement in your hand is not normal for aging. Activities such as fastening a button, picking up tiny objects, and holding utensils should be easy. Schedule a meeting with your nearest Tennesee Orthopedics specialist if you’re struggling with daily tasks such as opening and closing your hand, gripping objects, or completing a natural motion.

Do you have limited hand and wrist use that’s interfering with your daily activities? If so, don’t worry—Tennessee Orthopaedic hand and wrist specialists are here to help. Our board-certified orthopedic specialists will assess your hand issues and develop a personalized treatment plan. Surgery may be an option, but our TOA orthopedists will evaluate your condition to determine if physical therapy, medication, or environmental changes can be effective treatments.
