Virginia Spine and Sports Orthopaedics physicians evaluate and treat a wide array of disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder.

Hand & Wrist

Some of the more common hand and wrist problems include carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, tennis elbow, tendonitis, and fractures of the hand and wrist. Additionally, more complex disorders that are diagnosed and treated include traumatic, inflammatory, arthritic, congenital, and overuse. When appropriate, surgery is performed by our Board-certified and Fellowship-trained surgeons who are well-versed in complex disorders of the hand, wrist, and elbow. We employ a team-oriented approach to treatment, and often involve physical and occupational therapists to maximize functional outcomes for our patients, who find this continuum of specialized care invaluable.

Shoulder & Elbow Surgery

Orthopaedic sub-specialization has become an integral factor in maximizing functional outcomes. This is quite apparent when treating the shoulder and elbow where the delicate balance between soft tissue tension and stability are tenuous and intimately linked to regaining range of motion and ultimate function. Seeking a specialist in these areas will afford the patient the best possibility for full recovery. Virginia Spine and Sports Orthopaedics offers Board-certified and Fellowship-trained physicians in shoulder and elbow surgery. Our doctors are proficient in the latest minimally invasive procedures that enable faster recovery with less pain, as well as state-of-the-art reconstructive techniques to address degenerative conditions and complex fractures.
